Hot on the heals of their new Darfield trial service, Red Bus is considering introducing a regular commuter bus service between Amberley and Christchurch. Currently Red Bus are conducting a survey to understand the demand for such a service, which would operate Amberley-Pegasus Town-Kaiapoi-CBD (Direct). I have to say, I really like the survey questions, much better than what you usually get in Metro surveys.
I recently advocated such services to these centres, so it is now excellent to see it happening. I think this is a great initiative by Red Bus, and I will follow developments closely. I have to ask, how long before Ashburton gets a daily service?
