Leccy ferry for Auckland


Recommended Posts

It’s not the govt which puts routes up for tender. Under the public transport operating model [PTOM] all PT routes are put up for tender by the regional council (AT in Auckland’s case). The Waiheke and Devonport runs are exempt from PTOM thanks to Fullers lobbying Steven Joyce when the system was created. This has created a monopoly with no control over fares, frequencies or standards. AT is currently negotiating with Fullers to bring the Waiheke and Devonport services into PTOM.

Yep = this is a development that is long overdue.... as for Fullers preferred model - Ha ! Who wouldnt want to operate the most profitable route in Auckland and not have to own or maintain the ferries
