Bust your best and worst bus stops
What is your bus stop like?
The Public Transport Users Association is in search of the best and worst bus stops across the country.
The new Best and Worst Bus Stop campaign launched on August 4 and aims to celebrate bus stops that provide shelter, amenity, good passenger information and safe access to buses.
The prize-based, crowdsourced campaign seeks out New Zealand’s best and worst bus stops, shining a light on bus users’ experiences.
‘‘Such bus stops set a standard for the many users of bus services,’’ Public Transport Users Association chair Christine Rose says.
The public can have their say by loading images onto the Best and Worst Bus Stop Facebook page.
‘‘We’d like to hear from New Zealanders about their favourite bus stops and shelters, and why,’’ Rose says.
There is a $100 supermarket voucher prize for both the best and the worst bus stop.
‘‘Bus stops are the final frontier in a bus user’s journey and can define the rest of the experience and be a deciding factor in whether people will use public transport or not,’’ Rose says.
In addition to identifying the good bus stops the campaign also seeks public feedback on the worst bus stops.
