Good afternoon Greg,

This relates to your 11 November request for information regarding the bike racks on Christchurch's Metro buses, which was sent to both the Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury. The bus services are provided by ECan rather than the CCC; the FYI website shows that ECan have replied with the information you requested.

Yours sincerely,


David Mayes
