Staff and personnel of Bluestar celebrated the launch of the bus operator’s 17 route extension at Adanac Park.
The route was extended following feedback from passengers and management hope that more people will choose to leave their cars at home, easing congestion and helping improve air quality within the city.
The Bluestar 17 service now extends beyond Lower Brownhill to take in Adanac Park. In the other direction, the route reaches beyond the city centre to Woolston and Weston.
The change in route did come with it’s resistance and criticism from some local residents.
“The extension of the number 17 Bluestar bus service strengthens the sustainable travel options available.
