Dear Nichola Powell,

Oh wow, thats a lot more than I was hoping for! I'll send another request through related to this data. I may limit it due to the number of cases.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Nichola Powell,

Hate to be a pain, but I note that you have included "Team" rather than "Operator" for some of the cases. Can I please get the Operators for the following cases as requested originally. If they have no operator, then a quick explanation of why would be great. Reason I ask is I doubt that a bus operated by "GW Complaints Team" had a close call with a cyclist, as in case 145260, unless that cyclist happened to nearly collide with a GWRC building, or in case 135041, unless that cyclist happened to actually collide with the building causing injury.

Can you please get this missing data to me by the end of the day 21st March 2019. I won't worry about that being past the deadline of the 20th if you get the data by then.

The following cases are missing the operator:
154254
165328
137233
132571
132894
134543
135554
142811
144460
144816
145260
150431
150548
151700
153704
153715
155515
156332
157935
161785
163453
165076
167338
135041
133266
166808

In addition, can I get a bit of clarification on what "NZ Bus (Exempt)" means (for case 145733). Is this case somehow exempt from something?

Yours sincerely,

Hugh Davenport
