Public transport advocate Bus Go Canterbury has been left disappointed after Red Bus ceased a bus trial running from Darfield through to West Melton and Christchurch. Red Bus previously gave the green light for the trial to run from February 7 after a successful meeting with Bus Go Canterbury. But low patronage meant the bus service ended on March 9. Bus Go Canterbury co-founder Nick Stoneman said he was disappointed but not surprised. “We still maintain Darfield and West Melton should be on the network . . . it is not the size of Rolleston yet but it is getting there,” he said. Patronage numbers were estimated to be between 15-20 in the morning and two to five passengers in the evenings during the trial. •Turn to page 5 We’re ready when you are! Titles ready right now!
