Bus services for Darfield and Leeston to start soon

Environment Canterbury media release: 18th January 2019

Trial commuter bus services for Darfield and Leeston will begin from Monday 28th January 2019, following overwhelmingly positive feedback from local residents.

Environment Canterbury senior manager public transport Stewart Gibbon said he was pleased with the response to the proposed services.

“We needed to know if the Darfield and Leeston communities agreed with us that there was a need for a service like this, and if they were prepared to support it.”

Selwyn mayor Sam Broughton say the new services will be a boost for the townships. “It was great to have so many people support the proposal for a trial.”

“These buses will provide a valuable sustainable transport option for people working in the city, and I encourage local residents to make good use of the routes during this trial period so they become a permanent subsidised service.”

200 submissions were received for the Leeston survey. 96 percent of respondents claiming that they, or someone in their household, would use the service. 189 submissions were received for the Darfield survey, with over 93% stating that they, or someone in their household, would use the service. Over 50 percent of respondents to both surveys said they would use the services at least twice a week.

“We also asked for input on desired pick-up and drop-off locations, as well as on the times for the service to run. This feedback has enabled us to plan the two routes and schedules for the services in a way that will best suit each individual community,” said Gibbon.

Each service will run one trip in the mornings to Christchurch, and one trip back in the afternoons from Monday to Friday.

The 86 Darfield service will travel via Kirwee, West Melton, and Westfield Riccarton to the central city. The 87 Leeston service will travel via Doyleston, Irwell, Springston, The Hub Hornby, and Westfield Riccarton to the central city.

Timetables are available now on the MetroInfo website.

The new routes will be running on a trial basis over the coming months, during which time the performance of the services will be monitored.
