Wellington councillors shouted down at bus meeting

From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 27 August 2018

Wellington councillors were shouted down by angry bus users at the first of a series of public meetings last night. The Wellington Regional Council is not making anything more than minor changes to the new bus network despite receiving a torrent of complaints and verbal abuse at a public meeting. It is the first time the council has faced the public since the biggest overhaul of the public transport in decades was introduced six weeks ago. And the crowd certainly were not shy about venting their frustrations.
