Poll: Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.

Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.

Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.

AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.

Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

If so, please share your experience!

Self Care Sundays #3 - Stretching & Yoga

Talia Scarborough from The New Think

Kia ora Neighbours!

Ahhh I’ve really been enjoying these, they are such a great reminder for me to do my own self care as well.
In this week’s ✨Self Care Sunday✨ video I talk about incorporating stretches/yoga into your self care toolbox and go through 2 of my favourite ways to do this:
- “bedtime yoga” as a sleep aid and
- stretching for workplace (office) postural issues.

Everyone’s bodies and self care needs are going to be different, so make sure to tailor this to suit your individual needs!
