Bus stop change best for students By JESS ETHERIDGE SERVICES AFFECTED On the buses: Some Shore buses are set to pick passengers up in Auckland city from a new stop making life easier for passengers. University students are set to benefit the most out of the new North Shore bus route termin- ation stop in Auckland's central business district. Devonport-Takapuna Local Board members have been after the route alteration for years, Jan O'Connor says. Bays via Takapuna buses will now pick up and drop off passengers outside The Civic Theatre on Auckland's Wellesley St. It was closed about 8 or 9 years ago to allow the Queen St upgrade and Auckland City Coun- cil wouldn't allow it to be reopened,'' Mrs O'Connor says of the theatre bus shelter. The shelters will be better used now, she says. I know it sounds trite butonawetdayitis infuriating to see buses in that stop but drivers are not allowed to let people board.'' The services will ter- minate on Mayoral Dr, outside Auckland Uni- versity of Technology, chairman Chris Darby says. He says Auckland Transport has taken a much wider look at Shore bus routes, not just the new Civic Theatre bus stop. It brings the service back down into the heart of Queen St valley'' where shopping, shows and university are, Mr Darby says. Terminating the bus services at AUT is better for logistical reasons as it allows buses to catch up on delays without clogging busy inner-city streets, he says. Mr Darby believes more direct routes into the universities are to come. Visit tinyurl.com/ NSBusChanges for more information. Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan says the changes are for East Coast Bays and Ritchies North Shore services only. All Albert St services from the North Shore will finish on Mayoral Dr opposite AUT. Services to the North Shore will depart from Mayoral Dr opposite AUT and travel along Wellesley St and then Albert St. There are some minor timetable amendments. There are no changes to Birkenhead Transport, Hibiscus Coast services, Northern Express and services that do not travel via Albert St, he says.
