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.
