Bus lanes boost bus use

Posted on May 19, 2010 by


A survey over the past 18 months showed passenger numbers along the [Papanui] route jumped 22 per cent, compared with 9 per cent for the rest of the city. 

Hopefully we’ll see the same results or better on the Colombo and Queenspark buslanes. It certainly brings a lot more hope for me about the Riccarton project.

Also, it would be interesting to find out what effect they had on car trips – is the bus growth coming passengers switching from other routes, or from passengers switching from cars?
