"Wellingtonians deserve a free day of public transport, to apologise for a year of public transport failure," said mayoral candidate Conor Hill, as the one year anniversary of Bustastrophe approaches.
Wellingtonians continue to be affected by major public transport issues. Cancelled buses leave people stranded, complaints have skyrocketed, and throughout the fiasco we've seen a lack of humility and leadership from Wellington's civic leaders. A day of free public transport would be a small start in making it up to Wellingtonians.
"If the last year has proved anything, it is that Wellingtonians rely on their buses. I'm asking civic leaders to apologise for Bustastrophe with a day of free fares." said Conor.
