Green Bay and Titirangi bus services proposed to change

Green Bay and Titirangi bus services proposed to change

Auckland Transport is proposing changes that will make better use of the bus services that currently run in the Titirangi, Green Bay, Blockhouse Bay, Laingholm, Glen Eden and Tanekaha areas.

The proposed changes will increase service frequencies and create a simpler, easier to understand timetable compared to the 26 different route numbers currently operating. Timetables will also have even spacing between trips, easy to remember departure times and more trips throughout the day.

There will be better service frequencies with more route options between Titirangi and New Lynn. Currently services only run at odd times on weekdays between these centres with gaps of up to two hours between some services.

A new route will be created to link Titirangi Village directly with Glen Eden shops and train station and existing express services will be replaced with some new express routes.

Some direct trips to the city will be replaced by local trips to New Lynn where passengers will need to connect to another bus or train. Connections between bus and train have been timed to allow passengers to transfer easily.

Some low frequency services in Wood Bay, Tanekaha Rd, French Bay and Titirangi will be withdrawn. Other routes will also change but overall the number of trips will increase.

Services included in the review include: 19X, 104, 163, 170, 173, 173X, 177, 179, 179X, 180, 181, 182, 183, 184, 185, 187, 188X, 189, 189X, 191, 193, 197, 197X, 198, 198X, 199, 207, 207X

Group Manager of Public Transport, Mark Lambert says the proposed changes are a direct response to passenger requests to have a simpler, more legible and more frequent bus service.

“These bus service improvements can be made ahead of the wider New Network consultation for West Auckland.

“We have the resources and service operators are on board to make any changes, which depending on public feedback can be carried out in mid-2014.

“We will have information out in the community so we encourage people to pick up a copy of the consultation brochure, have a read of the changes and give their feedback on the proposals.”

Public consultation on the proposed changes runs from Monday 21 October to Friday 22 November 2013.

Gordon Campbell: On Last Night’s Debate, And The Collins Accusation

Debating is a peculiar discipline in that what you say is less important than how you’re saying it. Looking poised, being articulate and staying on topic generally wins the day – and on that score, Labour leader David Cunliffe won what turned out to be a bruising encounter with Prime Minister John Key last night on TVNZ.

Cunliffe marshalled his points better, kept Key off balance and – more often than not – was in control of the general tenor of the contest. Labour supporters would have been heartened, and given some belated reassurance that maybe the change of leadership last year had been the right decision. More>>
