In May last year, the Rodney Transport Targeted Rate was introduced in north Auckland to fund high-priority local transport options, including bus routes, footpaths and park and ride facilities. The rate (an extra $150 a year/$2.90 a week) is expected to raise $46 million over 10 years and has already seen three new bus services to connect residents to the rest of the city. The RTTR is the first targeted transport rate within the Auckland region.

Hi neighbours, tensions are rising over the Waiheke ferry services. MP Nikki Kaye has called for an urgent meeting after she received complaints from residents over cancelled services and "massive" queues. Do you catch the Waiheke ferry services? What is the experience like for you?
