Jill Ford started this petition to Wellington City Council

This is what Wellingtonians want you, their council to do:
Wellingtonians overwhelmingly want councilor's to prioritise active and public transport. People of Wellington want and need better cycle, and bus options to the CBD from southern suburbs and the hospital. By making some small changes to clearways the council can support more people using bikes, improve reliability of buses and meet its own goals around reducing transport carbon emissions very quickly.
With all progress has been delayed by LGWM, and routes becoming increasing congested,
We call on WCC to make the following Clearways:
*Hall St to John St - 7 – 9am, 3.00pm – 6pm.
*John St to Basin reserve - north -3.00pm – 6pm.·        
*Mein St - Daniel St to Riddiford St; 7-9am, 2.30 – 6pm – Mon – Fri, 7 – 2pm – Sat     *Both sides of middle of Cambridge/Kent Terrace, Courtney Place to Basin Reserve 7 – 9am, 4- 6pm.
These are a simple way to make it easier for more people to get to and from these suburbs without waiting for LGWM

Why these clearways?
These are key routes from CBD to southern suburbs and Wellington Hospital.
These small changes would reduce congestion, supporting more people on bikes and more reliable buses.
The current bus lanes do not extend as far needed and are only for a short time which enables free all day parking. Making the streets dangerous for people on bikes and buses held up in.
The parking in narrow Mein St makes it difficult for Ambulances, dangerous for the school children and for cyclists.
