Wellingtonians rely on public transport. We need it to be safe, reliable, with timetables that make sense.
The Health Act 1956
— revised 2007 — requires territorial authorities like the Greater Wellington Regional Council to (among other things):
- Improve, promote and protect public health within its district.
- Employ Environmental Health Officers, whose duties include enforcing nuisance provisions, regulations and bylaws and assisting DHBs to investigate and control risks to public health.
- Identify and abate nuisances.
How did we end up with an ageing fleet of polluting diesel buses on our roads for the next decade instead of the “electric future” we were promised?
How did a company without the infrastructure and trained staff get 60% of the routes?
This is a total failure of leadership and we need an "electric future" that we can be proud of today
