Adventure Day – Slow Crawl or Fast Run

Our story of trying to use the free bus pass for the Northern Busway from Takapuna, kindly provided by Auckland Transport (hint: taxpayers).

Pete Ward and Monique Bradley decided to go and travel around their city using free bus passes gifted to them in the mail from an Auckland City Council / Auckland Transport ‘Slow crawl or fast run?’ campaign. Turns out it was a slow walk….a real slow walk…in the rain. They discovered mis-matched information, user un-friendly automated machines, admissions from Transport staff and management that they don’t even use public transport and some of the friendliest people around working for Veolia…….
Watch and enjoy…..
