My SIL travels from Albany to Britomart, central Auckland by bus for work. That's after she's got from Dairy Flat to Albany to use the overcrowded, enlarged, over crowded again park and ride car park there.

It's no surprise that she practically parks outside their old house where she could walk to the bus terminus. Aucklanders, eh ?

Maybe she will have to drive to work today, along with squillions of others as the rain pours down. Living the dream, bro.

No more smugly cruising down the bus lane looking at the bumper to bumper suckers in their cars in lanes of stationary traffic.

Will they open the bus lane to ordinary traffic to ease congestion, seeing as there's next to no buses today ? I guess that's a no.

"Drivers are currently still adhering to a 'work to rule' industrial action, meaning they follow the company's rules to the letter instead of taking shortcuts..."

Yes, you follow those rules...that'll show 'em . What a bizarre situation where the rules of employment are so poorly set out by the employer it actually hinders the service and efficiency they are trying to deliver. Is this company capable of safely operating a fleet of heavy passenger vehicles in densely populated areas?
