The Loco Loco 'Poll'

Graeme from Frankton

As some of us have seen , patronage on Te Huia has dropped below 30 people per day . Some factions are talking of cancelling this service , but I see there is a 'poll' , tellingly with no costings , talking of putting on a 3rd train each day , and extra services on Saturdays and Sundays .

In order to be informed , would they not include basic information ?

Tellingly , there are less buses , because less people travel , mainly due to Covid , but going back to 2019 , there were 18 scheduled buses per day , offering a range of prices and services . So the buses respond to demand , and put on less buses . Why ? Because they need to make money , while still offering a service .

The Loco Loco wants to put on MORE services , because right now they need 4900 people per journey to make money , and they only get 30 . Oh , I know , lets do MORE services . That will work .

And through all this -- WE ARE PAYING FOR THIS . With both or rates and our taxes , we are paying . 200,000 are subsidising 30 people to travel outside the region to work . Madness IMO .
