Ben – Issue 3

Kia ora koutou e te whānau!

Easter is over, we’re on the home straight now but make sure to look out for your mates as the pace increases.  Thank you to everyone who completed our bus services survey, over 250 responses have given us a strong ground to campaign for later bus hours on.

We have heard stories of students feeling isolated and unsafe after walking home at night because the last bus has left, from vets with late labs, and many others.  Most respondents supported later bus routes to the suburbs. We are calling on Massey University and Horizons to provide later bus services for students and for our community.

It’s not just a student issue either. We ride the same buses as pensioners, migrants, and workers, and are working with a range of community groups to lobby for better buses.

So, let's campaign for better buses.  For later buses. If you want to get involved, share your views and your experiences with us.  Write to our Horizons councillors. The council is also taking submissions on its 10 Year Plan, be sure to have your say.  Better buses are better for all.

Let’s get started,
