Support for the Bus Drivers who are offering free fares till Christmas 2019.

Sue from New Lynn

I am posting to say how much I support the bus drivers who are resorting to industrial action whilst asking for better pay.
You have my total support on all this.
Shame on Auckland Transport for cancelling bus services in main routes even today 7.12.19. Your actions show to me and probably many others how obsessed and shallow you(Auckland Transport and of course the Auckland Council)are to make profit from the commuting public.
Most of us know NZ is a deliberately kept low income country but for AT and AC to deny drivers who allow the Auckland commuting public to get from A to B without paying a fare a Living Wage or an Acceptable Wage is a very poor reflection back upon the overpaid and underworked management of AT and of course AC.
And so whilst drivers allow us commuters to hop on and off the buses for free and without contributing to the obsessed with profit AT and AC then I am all for the drivers protesting.
Keep up the fantastic efforts you are doing bus drivers. You all deserve a medal for all this.
Shame on YOU AUCKLAND TRANSPORT AND AUCKLAND COUNCIL. May you reap the results of YOUR selfishness.

Denise Piper Reporter from Central Leader

The SPCA says a new $300 fine is helping to spread the warning that people should not leave their dogs in hot cars.
What do you think - is the message getting through to dog owners?
