We need larger ferries that are more reliable from Gulf Harbour to Auckland

This petition had 1,484 supporters

We have a strong ferry community here in Gulf Harbour and are very passionate and vocal about things that concern us.

However the things that bugs us the most are the following:

  • Unreliable communication regarding whether or not the ferries will run on the day (it's not like we can instantly call in an uber, or decide to drive (we'll be stuck in traffic) or catch a bus ( now that's a different story....)
  • Ferries (we currently have 3 ferries :D7, D6 (which are pretty good) and D3 (the one that has an issue almost every week....we're curious to know why this boat is still even running with cancellations almost every week with 'boat maintenance, right through to other issues with this boat). The ferries should be able to run despite the distance covered. 
  • More ferries is something we have been constantly speculating about. Not so long ago we took part in completing a survey requesting for more ferries. However this did not get through the line with AT (apparently there was just not enough budget for this). It's now time for more ferries. With the amounts of people moving into Gulf Harbour/Manly etc, it's about time we accommodate this. But also a chance for the rest of our fellow Aucklanders to shimmy to and from the coast. Heck it's bit of a mission to get out here too! And what better way to get people to explore our beautiful Tamaki Makaurau eh! The irony is the fact that us fellow coasties are always willing to pay extra to go a mile! So now why can't we get more ferries? Say in the weekend/or an evening. A mini trial at an appropriate time would be ideal to just give it a go and see how it goes.

This is a petition to show how much we want bigger boats (i.e replace D3 to Takahe!!), for the amount we pay every month we deserve better!  We'd also like to have more boats and ones that are reliable as well.
