Public transport

The choice to take public transport should be easy for everyone and we need Auckland Transport to prioritise this for everyone.

Project ideas include:

  • Minimisation of on-street parking to provide access for cycle lanes, bus stops and widening footpaths for pedestrians
  • Night ferries on the weekends and during the week
  • More late night buses
  • Bike lanes on dominion road (with Light Rail)
  • Divide large footpath over bridge beside Great South Road intersection with Church St into cycle lane / keep glass off
  • Early morning Public Transport services
  • Free public transport for teachers/students up to and including doctoral students
  • Features on public transport to assist people with disabilities such as wheelchair access

 

Cycling and walking

Our environment should help show that cycling and walking is able to used by people and that they feel safe and supported in making this choice.

Projects ideas include:

  • End of trip facilities for cyclists such as storage lockers, showers, enclosed bike racks, CCTV, etc
  • Pedestrianise Queen St to provide a safe environment for pedestrians
  • Make High Street a Shared Lane to provide opportunities for cycling and walking to be more accessible
  • Finish the Laneway circuit as previous success in Vulcan Lane can be replicated throughout the city to benefit all
  • Subsidy for students and young professional who would like to buy e-bikes (e-bike subscription should not just be left to businesses).
  • More bike support centred around the city such as tyre pumps, etc
  • Ensure that main roads as well as roads leading to schools have cycle paths that are not shared with buses

I am wondering if we could talk to google maps to actively improve life for walkers and cyclists. Tell them not to send cars passed schools in the morning or to unbusy cycle routes. For example, in the morning, when Meola road fills up with cars heading to the bridge, google will redirect drivers passed Western Springs College. this makes walking and biking along Motions road unattractive. A simple tweak to the algorithms might help us achieve the goal of saving fossil energy by making walking/cycling a bit more pleasant. Weirdly it might also take a few cars off the road meaning the likes of Meola Road doesn't fill up quite as much in the mornings and google doesn't have to ....

Transportation is in industry that common person cannot survive without. These engine connecting rod bearings for motor vehicles are an important part of these transport vehicles. From bestessay services you can collect more information on these rod bearing and their function.

This is a great news. All these new additions make it that much attractive. That ten inches screen will make our journey much more interesting. The audio system is also great. On managed vps host services detailed specifications of this new model are available.
