Transport authorities hope Auckland's fast-filling park and ride facilities will become more like “kiss and rides”, where partners drop their spouses off and seal it with a kiss, rather than needing to park.
Transport Minister Phil Twyford made the comment when asked if there were enough car parks at the Albany park and ride to cope with increased patronage as a result of the northern busway extension, due to be completed about 2022.
“If you rely solely on park and rides, then you just actually increase congestion around the stations. Ultimately, in some stations you’ll see ‘kiss and rides’, where spouses will drop their partner off at drop off zones.”
