PUBLIC BUS SERVICES * New Zealand - First big route contract
* Otago - Change to southern routes includes new buses
-- Dunedin public transport improvements: At least six new 42-seat buses will be running on southern bus routes from July 1 next year... Otago Regional Council members yesterday welcomed the letting of the first big route contract - which has been gained by the current provider, Go Bus Transport Ltd - under the ORC's new regional passenger transport plan... The MAN's buses will be "super-low", will "kneel" for boarding passengers and will all be accessible to people with disabilities... The new contract reflects the first step of an ambitious multimillion dollar ORC plan to speed up public transport, and make it more efficient and attractive for passengers...
