We Say/You Say: Paperless Trips

Thomas Campbell Reporter from The Hutt News

Kia ora neighbours,

What do you think about the Snapper card extension to Wellington Train services?

Snapper will be rolled out on Wellington train services from October this year, ending over a century of paper ticket use.

The Johnsonville Line will be the first to trial the paperless system, with a full roll out dependent on the finalisation of commercial negotiations.

This is seen as a step towards Waka Kotahi's planned National Ticketing Solution, an initiative that would see all of New Zealand's public transport centralised on one payment system. It would let commuters pay for their journey through a credit/debit card, similar to London's Oyster Card, in use since 2011.

"Hi there my name is Vader aka Vaddie. I came into SPCA under unfortunate circumstances and have been under the care of the Veterinarian and Canine Team. I am now ready for my forever home.
It has taken a bit of time for me to come out of my shell and learn to trust people but once to do I am very loving and loyal. I would love quiet, predictable home with someone around for parts or all of the day as I am not comfortable with being left alone and thrive with company. I would love a home that enjoys going for walks and adventures but at the same understands that I am not always comfortable around the hustle and bustle of city life, I can be a very sensitive soul. I do however, have a playful side. I love playing with toys."

The decision not to extend a new Wellington Airport bus service to Lower Hutt has been described by proponents as “a slap in the face” to ratepayers.
Wellington has been without a direct bus route to the airport since the Airport Flyer service stopped operating in November. It had been running, through Wellington city and onto Lower Hutt, for 20 years but was axed by the Airport and NZ Bus after it was found to be too costly.

The Greater Wellington Regional Council has committed to including a bus between Wellington city and the airport as part of its Metlink public transport network but the new service would not continue to Lower Hutt.
Hutt South MP Ginny Andersen, Lower Hutt-based National MP Chris Bishop, Lower Hutt mayor Campbell Barry and Hutt City Councillor Deborah Hislop have been calling for the service to return to the Hutt.
