Direct commuter buses from Rangiora and Kaiapoi to central Christchurch could be on the cards, provided Waimakariri ratepayers are willing to pay for it.
The first proposed option is to have four trips from Rangiora and Kaiapoi into the city in the morning, and five back in the afternoon. The maximum increase on the targeted urban rate would be $30, while rural homes would be charged up to $10, on top of the current rate of $81.10 and $9.70 respectively.
The second proposal would have three buses going to Christchurch in the morning, and three back in the afternoon, meaning a maximum increase of $22 for urban ratepayers, and $7 for rural ratepayers.
Consultation is open until December 8. For more information and to submit on the proposal, visit the ECan website.
