Govt bus funding shortcomings
Hamilton City Council has sent a letter to Transport Minister Stephen Joyce, expressing our concern at the effect the Government’s freeze on public transport funding will have in the near future on the development of Hamilton’s bus services, noting that we already receive a lower per capita rate of PT funding than Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. The Government transport funding programme will jeopardise the implementation of our transport strategies - which they have previously agreed to!
