NORTH SHORE SERVICES
BOROUGH COUNCIL CRITICISM
Refusal of the No. 1 Licensing Authority to authorise the reinstatement of a bus trip connecting with the 11.25 p.m. ferry from the city until the tyre situation improved evoked criticism at a meeting of the Devonport Borough Council last evening.
"Since the present monopoly has taken over the transport on the North Shore, every time we ask for something we get bashed," said Mr. M. Meikle.
The suggestion was made by Mr. A. Massey that the licensing authority should be asked whether, in view of the tyre position, it was intended to allow the North Shore Transport Co., Ltd., to run services on Sundays purely for the benefit of pleasure-seekers. It was decided, on the motion of Mr. Meikle, to ask another bus company whether it would be prepared to provide a service tt> Narrow Neckvia Albert Road, from the 11.25 p.m. ferry, if the necessary permission could be obtained from the licensing authority.
The ferry service was also the subject of discussion, and' it was decided that a suggestion be made to the North Shore Local Bodies' Association that it approach .the ferry company with a view to an advisory committee, comprising representatives of the association and the company, being set up to meet regularly to discuss matters of mutual interest.
