In the first consultation, we asked if you thought we should make the existing express trips on the Blue Line and the 95 stop at all stops, or at a limited selection of stops, as the current arrangement hasn’t provided any significant time saving benefits. The responses to this question were evenly split as to which would be better.
Later this year, we will be consulting with Waimakariri residents on the types of commuter services that could use the Northern Arterial Motorway when it opens in 2020, and how such services would be funded. As part of that, we will consider how the existing express trips work and if changes are needed.
With a fair bit of activity coming up in the public transport space for Waimakariri, the image below provides a general timeline of when you can expect to be hearing from us, and when you are likely to see some changes taking place.
