On the Southlink today from the coast to New Plymouth - our favourite bus in the world (it stops right outside our front door)! 10 passengers on the way to town. For our family of four it will be 20 bus rides this week (we also car pool and bike to work along the coast). On Tuesday, I left the car in Spotswood when picking up the kids from kura and we caught the No.2 to town to go to the library and rock climbing, then caught the last bus at 6.20pm back to Spotswood. We need councillors who support public transport and are ready to invest in and improve what we currently have.
