Information regarding metrics of passengers that are not picked up on buses

Hugh Davenport 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: Hugh Davenport

Dear Wellington Regional Council,

Attention Margaret Meek

I have looked at, and there seems to be no metrics on how many passengers are waiting for a bus at a bus stop and are not picked up by buses travelling past while too full to stop and pick up.

I would like to know (and preferably added to the above link) what metrics GWRC/Metlink are collecting about the number of passengers that are waiting for buses but are unable to get picked up due to full capacity buses. I would also like to know if you have metrics on how long those passengers have to wait until they are picked up.

I request this, as I believe that the GWRC do not have these metrics, and keep harping on about how the system is improving, but every single day I see multiple passengers left behind at stops because buses are too full for the bus network.

If it is the case that GWRC have no metrics on this, I would like to know what GWRC are doing about getting these metrics, then improving on those metrics to ensure a better bus service.

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Davenport
