  1. KIA ora Denise, re: supergoldcard concession for the Whitianga ferry.
    I hope you are fine and everything is going well for you. By now I have more the 1000 signatures for my submission. What is the nxt step ?

    • next step — convince Mercury Bay Community Board to either 1. fund a direct subsidy to gold card holders ie. the Board (out of local rates) pays the operator for every gold card trip — have someone made a submission on the Long term Plan free the ferry? If so can you convince the Board to put up funds for this subsidy.

      or 2. for the Board to fund and prepare a business case for a NZTA subsidy where the local ratepayer has to put up 49% of the cost of the subsidy. This is very difficult because the service is run by a private operator and is not public transport . The chances of success are remote and at least a year away because of the process being complex.

      Personally I think your best bet it to convince the local board and TCDC representatives to fund a direct subsidy. 1000 signatures should help?
