Two Environment Canterbury councillors are pushing for a two-year trial of free buses in greater Christchurch, but the move is likely to cost ratepayers and taxpayers millions of dollars.

The regional council, which is already proposing a 24.5 per cent rate increase, will vote on Thursday whether to investigate a two-year public transport free-fare trial to start from mid-next year.

ECan councillor John Sunckell​, who requested the vote along with fellow councillor Megan Hands, said ECan had not been “heroic” enough in looking at public transport options within Christchurch.

I live in Papanui so someone close by would be good. I am learning to walk on a lead and next Friday I am allowed out on the footpaths can’t wait to show off my walking abilities as my two weeks are up after my last vaccination so I will be covered. Watch out for cuteness overload in Papanui real soon.
PS My two brothers who are identical to me are still for sale on trade me if anyone is interested.

Poll: Covid-19: Do you think taxi, truck and bus drivers should be next in line for the vaccine?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

The transport industry is pushing for its drivers to be next in line for Covid-19 vaccinations after frontline health staff.

Unions and industry groups argue that taxi, truck and bus drivers face greater risk of exposure and should be a high priority in terms of getting a jab.
