CityLink Whangarei passengers who use the service’s electronic Snapper cards are being urged to use up any outstanding credit on them by Saturday 29 September at the latest.
Councillor Bain says interim fares will be $2 an adult and $1 per child/high school student in uniform or with secondary school ID.
“While we had hoped that the new ticketing system would be ready to go in the same timeframe as our other changes, we’re pleased to be able to bridge the gap with a cheaper fare while we’re between systems.”
Councillor Bain says more information about the wider changes to be implemented in October will be available shortly on buses, at the Rose St bus terminus and via the CityLink website www.citylinkwhangarei.co.nz
The Northland Regional Council’s new nine-year operating contract for CityLink Whangarei with Ritchies will see a long-awaited service to Gumdigger Pl and the Lower Port Rd area.
An extension to existing route 7 will include Winger Cres, and all services will run until 4pm on Saturdays.
