Proposals for zone based fares: 4 Zones with Britomart as the central focus point. Close Te Mahia and Takanini Stations (relocated Takanini Station to near Spartan Road crossing and add Park and Ride) Look at adding a 20 minute frequency bus service between Manurewa. Porchester Road and Papakura Town Centre. Family Pass should also be made available Propose the AT-HOP cards have a flat 20% discount High Priority to have the Walters Road (Takanini) Station and Park and Ride facility built by 2018 with the continued urban development in the area. There is "latent" demand for such a South Link that would deem the investment economically and socially viable. • • • • • • • . The Gardens/Totara Heights.
