This is a Zero Information Content interview. I could not pin a single thing from the interview that was agreed and actionable among the waterfall of motherhood statements.

The colour coding is potentially discriminatory and could fail DDA because quite a large number of people (particularly males) cannot distinguish red and green.

The CityGlider was used as an example of colour coding - that is a fail right there! It was brought in with no numbering and then a second glider got added, then people got confused plus people could not type the colour into the TransLink search box for the route numbers so they actually had to add the numbers 60 and 61 ...

... so that system already does not work!

Council is not going to be a contractor but a partner - what does that mean? If it is not a contractor, then why sign a contract then? Or is it a 'contracted partner' now? ???  :conf

And the idea of three numbers going to two numbers and a letter - it is still three characters displayed, seriously this is rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic, bigger fish to fry like black holes in Centenary etc.

These people are going to wreck the joint, seriously!  :steam:

Praise be! If bus reform sails through without a hitch. Might make up some consolation for all the other bad stuff in the 'ten point plan'.

I'm not a TMR. Negative people... have a problem for every solution. Posts are commentary and are not necessarily endorsed by RAIL Back on Track or its members.


They must think their commuters are utterly stupid.  The path to this point tends to confirm that anyway.
