Please extend the train services on the weekend to include Pukekohe

This petition had 1,686 supporters

As we are now a part of the super city known as Auckland then why is it that we do not have the privileges that people living in Auckland are currently enjoying namely a train service that runs on the weekend.  Why does the service currently stop in Papakura when Pukekohe is now considered to be a suburb of Auckland.  We are entitled as rate payers to have the same facilities and amenities as our counterparts in other suburbs.

Not only would this service benefit workers as the working week as we now know it does not stop on a Friday it would also benefit families who want to spend the day together attending events in the city but do not want the hassle of having to use private vehicles.  This would also reduce the congestion on Aucklands' roads.

Another benefit to our local community is that it would also bring customers to shop with our local businesses.

Please sign this petition so that at least we can let Auckland Transport know how many people would consider utilising this service. This way it might give them a hurry up in their plans to finally include Pukekohe as a part of Auckland City.
