Yet another delay for Auckland's public transport network

There's more disruption for the beleaguered Auckland public transport network after Auckland Transport posted last minute warnings of train delays today.

Scheduled services on the Western, Southern and Onehunga lines were out due to problems with overhead power lines.

It is an infrastrucure issue that Auckland Tansport says is Kiwrail's problem. But commuters told our reporter Louise Ternouth it ends up being their problem.

AT data from the first two days of October shows it cancelled on average about 1100 bus trips a day. It declined to come on the programme but says it is working on adjustments to its timetables.

Transport expert Matt Lowrie from the Greater Auckland website says it's a shambles
