No 1 Bus issues
July 22 2019
I would like to know why the number 1 bus can’t go down to Sunshine Bay on every journey, which only takes an extra 2 minutes of the bus drivers time?
Don’t you want to reduce the amount of traffic and pollution in Queenstown?
It will encourage more people to use the bus if they know they don’t have to walk to the top of the hill or walk 15 minutes down the hill which is incredibly dangerous when it’s icy. I’ve fallen over a few times when it’s been icy and pitch black.
I’ve seen the bus plenty of times driving pass my house in Sunshine Bay when the bus is empty so what’s the difference if it has passengers on? I was told it only goes there 8-9am and 5-6pm to drop people off for work and finishing work.
I don’t understand that becuase Queenstown isn’t a city when the majority of jobs are 9-5.
You have a lot of hospitality jobs, when people work all hours of the day and I am one of them and can be finishing after midnight when the busses don’t even run at that time.
So please, think of the planet, incouraging more people to use the bus and think about our safety as well and expecially the elderly. It’s winter and forecast to get colder, so please don’t let us walk down a steep hill covered in frost and black ice for the sake of only a 5 minute drive extra.
