Disability advocates criticise Auckland planned train cancellations

From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 5 October 2022

Disability advocates are criticising a move by Auckland Transport to replace some trains with buses to allow for track maintenance.

Work will begin early next year to rebuild foundations underneath three major railway lines, and will continue for two years.

Auckland Transport says an alternative mobility taxi will likely be available, but they'll be recommending that customers book the service days in advance.

Disabled Persons Assembly chief executive Prudence Walker spoke to Susie Ferguson.
