Russel missed the bus so wants a train!

The Herald reports:

co-leader Russel Norman was literally up in arms about yesterday – but he still missed the bus.

Norman was heading from a TV3 appointment in Mt Eden to Auckland Airport and, as a good Green, opted to use the Airbus Express service.

But he could not attract the attention of the driver, who drove straight past.

Venting his frustration, he tweeted: “Hey Airbus, you know how you just drove past me on Mt Eden Rd even tho I was waving my arms rather vigorously, it doesn’t help PT [public transport].”

Norman then plugged an airport rail link.

“Oh boy we need a rail link to Auckland airport. 45m plus wait for an Airbus that wd stop. Greens will transform Auckland transport.”

I’m not sure that a bus refusing to stop for Russel is a good reason to build a rail link to Auckland Airport.

That’s another $1.5 billion added onto the Greens spending promises!
