    • NZ Bus disappointed with GWRC trolley buses decision
      • 27 Jun 2014
      • Go Wellington
      • NZ Bus is disappointed with today’s decision by Greater Wellington Regional Council to phase out trolley bus services in 2017. NZ Bus Chief Executive Zane Fulljames says that the Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP) has made steps in the right direction to improving Wellington’s public transport network but time will tell if the Council has got the trolley decision right.

      • I have been out an about 'on the stump' campaigning and will splice in a few local issues that are coming up in conversations with voters.First, those clanking Trolley Buses are becoming even more unreliable as they constantly de-wire.

    • On the Buses

      • Eye of the Fish
      • While I’ve been quite impressed by the new trolley buses in Wellington, one gleaming in its paua-shell colour-scheme as it slides silently through the city, I still have a hankering for a double-decker, which are fairly common throughout England, and of which we seem to have one roaming solo in the streets of Wellington.

      • The Wellingtonista
      • I know we all love trolley buses (and can't wait for the flash new three-axle jobbies to start ripping it up along Kent Terrace) but this must have been horrendous to be involved in at 5.15 yesterday afternoon. And deeply amusing for those of NOT involved, of course.

    • When the lines go down
      • 26 Apr 2007
      • The Wellingtonista
      • I'm sure you know that the Wellingtonista is a big fan of the trolley buses, and thinks that everyone who bitches about the wires overhead being an eyesore is an idiot. You probably think that it's because we're dirty leftie greenies that we're fond of the wires, but the truth is, we like them because it's hilarious when they go down. Like this morning, watching a trolley-bus having to get shunted by another bus out of a major Hataitai intersection.

    • Back on track: rants and raves

      • WellUrban
      • There's a lot going on regarding transport at the moment. First of all, if you believe that shutting down the trolley buses is a bad idea, then there's a public meeting at 3pm this Sunday to discuss what to do about it. Where? At the Aro Valley Community Hall, of course.

      • I really haven't had the time or inside information to look into who's right and wrong in the trolley bus funding spat. I can't tell whether there are genuine disagreements over costings, whether it's a petty squabble over who does what, or whether the various parties are just bluffing in an attempt to force someone else to pay.
