Bus cancellations relationship with funding from rates

Cody C made this Official Information request to Canterbury Regional Council

The request was successful.

From: Cody C

Dear Canterbury Regional Council,

I understand that in the year from 6 December 2021, 21,548 bus trips were missed and 21,929 trips were removed from the bus schedule & that around 35% of ECan rates contribute to bus operations.

What has happened to the funding from rates towards these bus services that were not operated? Presumably, there was no cost to ECan for these non-operated services.

Yours faithfully,

Cody C
