Don't know if this is the right place but does anyone have any issues with the new bus routes or should I say binned bus routes. The Seatun 11 is gone so there goes my direct bus near the airport from Newtown. Why change something that isn't broken?
Looking at Johnsonville West (53) it seems like it will change soon (around the time Snapper comes to Newlands Coach Service) - Metlink tells me it will be better but looking at the route description, I doubt it. Let's see when it comes live in a couple of months.
I predict issues with the new No 1 North/South "spine route" from Johnsonville to Island Bay too. Not sure how they intend to maintain bus frequency when the inevitable accident / congestion occurs on the Ngauranga Gorge. Will be fairly frustrating if you are waiting in Lambton Quay to get to Island Bay.
Buses running through the middle of the CBD are also part of the problem. GWRC initially proposed scrapping lots of these to eliminate a lot of the congestion, but in the end simply seem to have increased them.
