An Auckland councillor is calling for plans to introduce charging at public park and ride facilities to be dropped, Stuff reports. “Charging people to do the right thing is grossly unfair,” said Manurewa-Papakura ward councillor Daniel Newman. He believes park and rides should be encouraged in areas like south Auckland, to get more people onto the rail network and buses. The Council says the initial public consultation ended in May, but more work was needed to understand the perspectives of urban Māori.
