Looking For a Job F h EKERS' WEEK Transport fare rises postponed Fare increases proposed for Wellin- gton's buses and trains, due to take effect from 1 September, have been postponed. Peter Glensor, chairman of Greater Wellington Regional Council's economic wellbeing com- mittee, which oversees public trans- port, says negotiations with some operators about the fare increases were taking longer than expected. Getting to a place where every- one is satisfied with the changes always takes a substantial amount of time, but this year, discussions are taking longer than we had expected. We're hoping that negotiations will be completed soon,'' he said. We can't set a specific date yet for the fare increases to take effect. It won't be October 1 as that's right in the middle of Rugby World Cup 2011, and to have bus and train fares changing then would be too confusing for the thousands of visitors expected in Wellington.'' Mr Glensor said people who had already bought September monthly rail passes at the higher rate would be refunded. The proposed fare increase involves a 5 per cent increase to stored value cards, 10-trip tickets and monthly passes for buses and trains. There are also changes to some Johnsonville train fares and cash fares between Wellington and Waikanae and Wairarapa. There will be no changes to other fares set by GWRC. Mr Glensor said the increase would generate an increase of about 3 per cent in overall revenue. Like the cost of everything else, the cost of running public transport is increasing, so fares need to be increased to meet those costs.''
