Wellington Regional Transport policy launch

October 22, 2008

Wellington Transport Strategy Launch
Getting you home faster, cheaper, greener!

When: Wednesday 22 October at 8.30am

Where: Wellington Bus Depot (close to the railway station – outside Victoria University’s Rutherford House) where we will have a bus parked up with our Green signage on it.

What: Candidates from all over the province will travel in by train and bus to meet at the bus depot to launch the strategy. Sue K will give a short speech at about 8.40am and we will hand out copies of the Wellington Transport Strategy to the public.

TV3 will be filming the launch so please come out and support us on your way to work!

Edit: Here’s the update on how it went.

On a wet and windy morning, Green MP’s Russel Norman and Sue Kedgley joined regional candidates Lynette Vigrass, Virginia Horrocks, Gareth Hughes and Michael Gilchrist for a launch of Wellington regional public transport policy, travelling by train and bus and convening in the Lambton bus terminal. They were joined by a staunch group of supporters, who had braved a typical nor’westerly to join in this effort.

New bus ad’s being carried on Go Wellington Trolley buses were launched, with much flair, and attendance by TV3 and photographers from print media, as well as our inhouse film maestro, James.

Leafletting was carried out at the bus terminal and railway station, and then supporters jumped onto a chartered trolleybus, to ride the route down to Courtney Place, stopping to leaflet at Cuba & Manners Malls along the way.

Some leakage of supporters occurred, as those heading off to work slipped away, but we maintained a core crew to leaflet the Malls and Courtney Place, before dispersing at the National Office.
