    Upgraded buses? Conversion to electric, by any chance?

    Hopefully Metlink will recognise the need for smaller buses that better suit Wellington’s hilly, winding narrow roads. And in addition make sure the alterations include changing to electric non-emitting engines.

    >bringing them in line with the Metlink brand
    This is about giving them a paint job to get rid of the the blue, yellow and other colours in the NZ Bus fleet. We are not getting any E-bus replacements for these old diesel buses until between “mid-2021 and early 2023.”

    Get a better lay-out please. More seats in the front! A lot of time is wasted because the driver has to wait until people get to the back of the bus to find a seat.

    An expensive “lipstick on a pig exercise”. What the public of Wellington City want is to be rid of these old polluting diesel buses pronto. Changing their colour to fool the population that they are other than old, is a waste of our money. Who really cares what colour the buses are, apart from the highly paid members of the GWRC and Metlink.

    The bus fleet as it was earlier this year can be seen here. Note the age of some of the NZ Bus Ltd buses.

    Common livery and designer uniforms for drivers are yet more vanity projects we can live without in times of the severe economic downturn hitting the region. Ideas to save money would be a welcome change.
