The $115m Government subsidy to support public transport companies following a fall in passenger numbers due to Covid-19 will cease by the end of June, Stuff reports. The payments have provided about $69m to Auckland Transport (AT), whose passenger numbers are still only at 76 per cent of pre-Covid levels. However, (AT) does not envisage having to cut services and says its budget, starting on July 1, has taken into account the end of the extra taxpayer support.
