11.Why will the New Network encourage you to use Public Transport more
often?

Text Response Increased frequencies of the trains to give me greater choice when I want to head from Papakura (home) to either Britomart, Newmarket or Henderson. As for the buses, the introduction of Routes 365 and 371 give for the first time a proper bus route to take me to/from home (in east Papakura) to either the Papakura Train Station (which is outside of walking distance but always has a full park and ride), Takanini Station (would be Glenora Road Station once that is built), the soon to be opened Takanini Village (Addison) and due to no Manukau South Rail Link - Manukau City Centre (if I chose Route 365 over taking my car)

17.What do you like about the proposed New Network, and why?

Text Response The buses actually go somewhere that we would want while not entire duplicating existing rail services (thinking of the existing 471 and 472 bus services) As mentioned earlier Routes 365 and 371 (although needing some improvement) are a 5 minute walk from my house and can either take me to: 1) Papakura or (the proposed Glenroa Road) Station(s) to continue my journey into Newmarket, Britomart or Henderson 2) Papakura or Takanini Village where I conduct local activities (local shopping, banking, paying water rates, library) 3) Due to lack of the Manukau South Rail Link - Manukau City Centre if I was inclined to use public transport rather than the car (which is more easier at the moment despite State Highway 1 backing up in the afternoon) Those three points is what has me liking the New Network down here in the deep south of Auckland. That being I would be highly encouraged to use the network services - if the frequencies were suitable...

18.What don't you like about the proposed New Network, and why?

Text Response And this brings me to the point on the pet bane on the New Network. Frequencies on the Connector Local Services are too low in the off peak (some cases hourly). Not of us work 9-5 in an office in some centre across the other side of Auckland. Some of us are more mobile in what would be the off peak periods and would like to move around a frequent off peak public transport system as near freely as a peak commuter would have available as options. Whether that means a Local Service (bus) to your local centre to conduct business) or wanting a feeder bus into the trains to skip across town to see a friend on a Wednesday lunch time without having to resort to the car - we need better off peak frequencies on the connector and Local Services I know buses are expensive ($600k for the latest 52 seaters NZ Bus are purchasing) and supply is finite. But may be AT and NZ Bus (and others) need to look at 15-20 seater shuttles that are cheaper to purchase and run to step up the Local and Connector services to 15-20mins in the off peak. Step up the off peak frequencies with smaller shuttle units and allow more people freedom to travel by public transport in the traditional off peak period

19. Is there anything about the New Network you would change to better
meet your travel needs? Please be specific e.g. change the xx route to go down xx road increase frequency of xx route because... xx connection point should be moved 100m south down xx road xx connection environment should be improved with a shelter xx connection point is not a suitable location because.... Please be as precise as possible to ensure we can identify your desired changes.

Text Response Route 365 to terminate at Manurewa rather than Manukau (from Papakura). Have the proposed 365 route from Manurewa to Manukau dropped back to a Local Service rather than a connector service and renumbered. This is due to the proposed 365 route being too long, windy and redundant with the proposed Manukau South Rail Link in the pipeline that would allow direct fast train travel from Pukekohe and Papakura to Manukau Station instead of clumsy transfers at Puhinui Route 365 (Papakura to Manurewa) should be having a stop 100 metres to the west - meaning it takes a detour along Walters Road, Arion Road and Willow Camp Road before rejoining Porchester Road to allow direct feeding to the large Takanini Village and proposed Glenora Road Station Route 371: (Papakura to Takanini) should be having stops 100 metres to the west - meaning it takes a detour along Walters Road, Arion Road and Willow Camp Road before rejoining Porchester Road to allow direct feeding to the large Takanini Village and proposed Glenora Road Station until the "extended section" of Route 371 takes effect to which it should take its proposed "extended" path 20 minute off peak frequencies between 9-4 seven days a week with it extended to 11pm Fridays and Saturdays for Routes 371 and 365

20.Any further comments?

Text Response

To allow more connectivity to the New Network the Glenora Road Station and Manukau South Rail Link need to be both built by 2015/6. Glenora Road Station would serve a rapidly growing population base in the area (Addison, Papakura East, Takanini South) and take pressure off the already full Papakura Station which is currently used for potential Glenroa Road Station passengers like myself With Manukau being a primary employment, retail, entertainment and civic hub for Southern Auckland, it needs a dedicated rapid and direct transit route from Pukekohe, Papakura and Manurewa. That dedicated rapid and direct transit connection can only be rail and through the Manukau South Rail Link. Relying the Great South Road to feed passengers in and out of Manukau and back to the South is unreliable and prone to bottlenecking in many places including Takanini, Takanini Interchange, Manurewa Town Centre and between Manurewa Town Centre and Browns Road/Great South Road intersection. Rail removes that bottleneck and allows fast and efficient transit in and out of a City Centre (Manukau) area
