The Wellington bus network does not meet the needs of many locals. Previous consultation feedback showing actual needs is ignored by the council. The implemented "service" means a bus to the city involves more time walking to/ from bus stops (including steep hills with no pavement in some cases) than time spent on the bus and costs more than ten times the cost of petrol and 3 to 5 times as long as it would take to drive, park and get to the destination. Newtown is now congested with double ups of double decker buses doing the same route right behind each other). I know many people who now drive to work instead of getting the bus as the routes and timetable are badly designed and do not meet the need. Perhaps consider offering a standard $2 adults/ $1 child fares on any bus journey including transfers for a month (or better still 6 months) and see what people would actually use the bus for if it was more reasonably priced then put routes around it. Also please add shelters at all bus stops.
