Even though the State Government has the primary responsibility for the provision of public transport in the region, it is the Councils responsibility to ensure that the State Government is aware of changes in the region. I have heard the complaints from people living in Beachmere, North Harbour and the surrounding suburbs that the public transport in those areas seems to be very poor. I will be demanding that those areas are finally listened too so that residents will finally have a viable alternative transport other than the car.
