I have been holding off writing this blog, in the faint hope that someone would be able to convince New Zealand Bus in Wellington to adopt a position deserving of the 21st Century as opposed to the monopolistic behaviour they appear to be displaying. 1,042 more words
One of my personal projects in dealing with Metlink and Greater Wellington Regional Council is the Real-Time Information system. Over the years, I've come to the opinion that the system is either poorly specified or poorly implemented, but it's hard to imagine that a replacement could happen before 2020, or even a fix before 2017. The system doesn't fit passenger's needs. I'm pleased to see Ian and Hack Miramar pushing for position information to be released for free. It's shameful that NZ Bus would want to hold the position data as a source of revenue instead of letting it be used to promote better service and increased patronage.
