Introduce a second 012 school bus (St Mary's College)

This petition had 26 supporters


The St Mary's College 012 school bus is scheduled to arrive at 8:20am. However, this bus consistently arrives before or after the scheduled time. This is an issue for two main reasons.

Firstly, most of the girls arrive at the bus stop around 8:15am, with enough time to make the 8:20am bus. However, sometimes it unexpectedly arrives and leaves earlier, causing a majority of the girls to miss the bus, and resort to catching the crowded public bus. This is a problem because the public becomes irritated with the amount of school girls on the bus, and have sent several complaints to the school. Also, the girls are expected to give up their seats for the public. Despite the fact that St Mary's girls are more than willing to do this, a lot of the junior girls carry heavy items such as instruments, so this makes for an uncomfortable journey.

Secondly, the bus often arrives later than the scheduled time. As a result of this, the girls who catch the school bus arrive after the bell has gone. This occurs on a regular basis.

We are a group of Social Studies students who also catch this bus. We are creating this petition to raise awareness and encourage Waka Pacific (the bus company) to introduce a second bus. This will mean that the girls will not have to resort to catching the public bus.
