Use elec­tric buses

The New Zealand Herald - - EDITORIAL & LETTERS -

It's a bit of a cheek that one of the first acts of the new Labour/NZ First/Greens gov­ern­ment is to slap Auck­land's work­ing poor with a fuel tax to help pay for a tram line to the air­port, some­thing most of them will never use.

Why not just buy elec­tric buses and put them to work cart­ing wealthy tourists from down­town Auck­land to the air­port? Auck­land res­i­dents ride free! Very lit­tle new in­fras­truc­ture needed, en­vi­ron­ment­friendly and get started straight away.
