Free bus fares – petition

Aotearoa Collective for Public Transport Equity has a petition on Action Station that calls for the Minister of Transport to implement free public transport for Community Service Card holders, full- and part-time tertiary students, and under-25s nationwide. 

The petition states that New Zealand should be a place where everyone can afford public transport to stay connected, enjoy our regions, and travel in a way that’s kind to the environment, but with the high cost of public transport, many people can only afford to travel by private car, causing congestion and harmful carbon emissions.

The petition is here.
