Last thing we need


At a time when we need more people to take public transport, Auckland is looking at increasing public transport prices. So apart from the fact that cattle trains to abattoirs are more comfortable than public transport in Auckland, it will also be more expensive. Great, just what we needed to help Aucklanders get out of their cars. Brilliant move!

The secret's out - bus and train fares will rise
Auckland train and bus fares will rise next month, hitting thousands of commuters as they return to work from their holidays. The Auckland Regional Transport Authority had hoped to avoid publicity about the rises, posting details on an obscure page on the Auckland Maxx public transport website.

Auckland public's transport system completly sucks. Despite living in the middle of nowhere, my bumblefuck Korean town has a better public transport system than Auckland's.

I can't begin to tell you how much I hate public transport, have you ever tried to catch the link 'every 10 minutes' - every '10 minutes' my arse! And what about the trains catching fire all the time! It's almost as if they don't want us catching public transport!

at least we have pretty new buses on the shore

wait did we think that was needed?

No, i can understand the updating the old buses because really some of them were a touch crap but the need to rebrand the entire lot of them? thats a waste of cash.

i use the buses to get into and home from uni each day, its already expensive enough living out here (at home still to reduce other costs) this is going to make it that touch worse.

and by gosh, could they not rework their time tables every now and then? i caught the bust the other day and i was the only person all the way to Takapuna but then one evening during the semester when catching a normal bus home (after having just missed the last express) the bus was so crowded that the driver couldn't let any more people on

Would certainly be nice if you folks up in Auckland would get your public transportation and highway system act together! The rest of the country is VERY tired of paying for your inability to come up with solutions, and we're sick to death of hearing you all continually moan about it!
Maybe if you moved Auckland to Niue, you could all cram into a small space and not have the problem! It would also cure 80% of the crime problem too returning NZ to the peaceful place it once was!

That should go on a Tui ad. "The rest of the country pays for Auckland". Righhhht. Why do you think Auckland's public transport system is so fucking third rate?

Because Aucklander's are either too cheap or Dole Bludger's and refuse to pay their own way???

Was that a trick question???
