Proposed Regional Public Transport Plan

 

Resolution number MR/2018/223

MOVED by Member K Penney, seconded by Member J Allan:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)         agree to provide the following feedback on the Regional Public Transport Plan

Focus area

Manurewa Local Board comment

1.    Expanding and enhancing rapid and frequent networks

 

·        Support initiatives to increase the frequency and capacity of services in the rapid and frequent networks, including:

o      Increased frequency of bus services on FTN whole-of-corridor routes

o      Integrated corridor priority programme

o      Electrification of the rail line to Pukekohe station

o      Third main line between Wiri and Westfield. We would also like to see further development of this to provide a third line all the way to the city.

o      Improved public transport to the airport, including the proposed Airport to Puhinui RTN link and the Airport to Botany busway

o      Whole-of-route bus priority infrastructure (with cycling and safety programmes) – Great South Road.

·         Support the proposed increase in frequency of bus services on the Wattle Downs to Manurewa route (363) and request that Auckland Transport investigate extending these services beyond the current scheduled times. In particular, services departing later than the current last scheduled service (currently departing the Manurewa Interchange at 2145) are needed to meet the needs of this community.

 

·      Note that Manurewa has the second-lowest level of self-containment in the region and the highest private vehicle usage in the region at 85 per cent. This reflects:

o      the limited availability of easy public transport services

o      the nature and geographical distribution of employment in the area with a high proportion of shift working

o      and the dispersed nature of work sites located away from public transport routes on offer.

·      As there are a high number of worker trips to the airport from Manurewa, the board supports initiatives that improve public transport options for these workers. However, the board has concerns about the effectiveness of the light rail proposal and supports further exploration of a heavy rail option, as well as better utilisation of the existing bus and rail infrastructure, as an alternative. 

·      Note that the board has requested a review of bus services that previously traveled along Great South Road but have now been redirected through the Manurewa interchange to determine whether this route change has adversely affected local businesses.

 

2.    Improving customer access to public transport

 

·      Support measures to improve customer access to public transport as a way of increasing uptake of public transport in Manurewa.

·      Note that measures to lower the price of fares would encourage increased uptake of public transport.

·      Support improved wayfinding signage, but notes that it the cost of providing this infrastructure should not fall to local boards.

·      Support increased usage of te reo Māori in wayfinding initiatives.

·      Supports improving cycling and walking as modes of access to public transport. As our board area has a high incidence of road deaths and serious injuries, we welcome road safety initiatives as a part of this.

·      Support separated cycleways being created to ensure the safety of cyclists.

·      Request that Auckland Transport investigate issues of safety and security in park and ride facilities, including CCTV where this is not already provided.

·      Support the aspiration of Auckland Transport to contribute to placemaking and investment in local centres. In Manurewa, this will require improving public transport options between local centres.

 

3.   Improving Māori responsiveness

 

·      Support usage of te reo Māori and Te Aranga Māori throughout the public transport network.

·      Support social procurement and partnering to improve Māori and local community employment and business opportunities.

 

4.   Harnessing emerging technologies

 

·      Support harnessing emerging technologies to improve customer experiences and the efficiency of the public transport network.

·      Support investigation of on-demand services to improve access to public transport in areas where coverage is currently poor.

·      Note that such services will need to be subsidised in order to attract customers in lower socio-economic areas.

·      Support development of mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) as a future tool to enable customers to effectively manage transport options.

 

Other areas

·      Support initiatives to reduce carbon and other harmful emissions from the transport network.

·      Support local boards working with Auckland Transport to improve local access to public transport for placemaking initiatives.

·      Support development of a programme to check and improve older bus stops and shelters.

·      Support measures to improve customer safety and minimise opportunities for ticket fraud.

·      Support proposals to ensure that urban buses and light rail vehicles conform to standards for use by customers with accessible needs.
