Mike Mellor made this Official Information request to Wellington Regional Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington Regional Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mike Mellor

Dear Wellington Regional Council,

1. Metlink web page https://www.metlink.org.nz/service-updat... says that the 11 November 2018 bus timetable changes “should improve bus journeys for many of you, delivering...better connections between services”.

I request all information relevant to the connections referred to in the above statement, including but not restricted to:
a) the criteria used to define “better connections”;
b) for both the pre 11 November and post 11 November timetables for the affected routes, by location, direction and by day of the week (Monday-Friday; Saturday; Sunday), how connections to and from each route perform with respect to each criterion.

2. Metlink web page https://www.metlink.org.nz/customer-serv... says that “When properly working, you shouldn’t have to wait on average more than five minutes to make a timetabled connection to another bus at a sheltered bus hub”.

I request the following information for the post 11 November timetables, and for the pre 11 November timetables where the latter are different, for all timetabled connections into and out of each of the routes 1, 2, 7, 21 and 22, by location, direction and by day of the week (Monday-Friday; Saturday; Sunday):
a) the total number of timetabled connections;
b) the number and percentage of connections that exceed five minutes;
c) the number and percentage of connections that exceed ten minutes;
d) the shortest and longest connections;
e) the intended meaning of "properly working", and how this meaning was arrived at;
f) the intended meaning of "on average more than five minutes", and how this meaning was arrived at.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Mellor
