Request for information: 

"It has been raised with me about the 'temporary toilets' for bus drivers in Karori that were put in in 2018/19 and when will the matter be resolved? 

https://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/wellington/129231067/wellington-bus-drivers-lament-dire-state-of-toilet-facilities

This is raised in the context of the overall performance of the bus service in Karori in particular what are GWRC's plans for; 

  • Bus priority lanes (for peak commuter times) 
  • Ensuring sufficient width on the roads for current & future planned buses 
  • Increasing frequency & reliability to meet demand
  • Clarifying when (or if) the bus service timetable set in 2018 in Karori will be fully implemented
  • A travel demand bus service similar to Tawa (noting that Tawa has a population only about 2/3 of Karori 

I would appreciate if someone from GWRC could answer the above along with advising me what feedback, to WCC, has GWRC given to date in respect of the proposed bike lanes through Karori along with the need for bus priority lanes. In particular specific concerns around the available road space for buses."
