TThe councillors responsible for the destruction of Wellington's trolley bus network

The 2013 to 2016 Greater Regional Councillors pictured above voted, or agreed with, the proposal to get rid of the 100% pollution free trolley buses which have been replaced by old diesel ones. Most of the current GWRC councillors also agree with the decision. Current GWRC councillor Sue Kedgley and former councillor Paul Bruce opposed the removal of the trolley buses at the 2014 vote and fought vigorously until October 2017 to retain them. Alas there wasn't any support from the 2013 - 2016 Wellington City Councillors either to retain the trolley buses or replace them with pollution free alternatives.

WCC councillors Sarah Free and Chris Calvi-Freeman elected in 2016 were not supported in their attempt to retain trolley buses on the Seatoun - Karori service (number 2 route from 15 July 2018).
