This year it is local government elections in New Zealand and the Auckland City Council are busy trying to win the hearts and souls of the voters. A perennial problem is the city transport links and 'they' now say "they" have found a partial solution. Not just more buses but bigger buses!
So the route that goes past the end of my street now has these monsters.
But all problems are now solved. The HD3QBEM and I will try out the new buses soon - but we will not be riding upstairs;-)
