I have sent this to Auckland Transport feedback site. I recommend you do a similar thing.
From 1 January, Waiheke Fullers monthly pass holders will no longer be able to use bus services from NZ Bus on the mainland. This is an AT decision. Despite this cut in service access, Fullers has decided to keep the price of the monthly pass the same.
What needs to happen:
Either - 1. Fullers drops the
monthly pass price by between $80 and $140 (the cost of a monthly Hop
pass for buses on the mainland)
Or - 2. Fullers or AT
gives monthly Hop passes to monthly Fullers pass holders until such time
this cock up is sorted by a the issue of a monthly Hop pass valid for
all travel including Waiheke.
I don't see why passengers should pay for the dysfunctionality between Fullers and AT.
UPDATE 16DEC: I
got an acknowledgement from AT that they have received my query and
have forwarded it to the relevant 'business unit' (this is two weeks
after sending it off to them). They will try to respond within 10
working days. By then we will have lost our integrated monthly pass.
Good work Fullers/AT.
