Auckland Transport is expensive, poorly planned & comically unusable, but at least prices are going... up?
Yep. Fare increases coming soon. Good luck, kiwis!
Meanwhile, AT's CEO Dean Kimpton has a yearly salary of $620,000.
For comparison, New York's comparative CEO is on $490k NZD.
Calling anyone in #Auckland!
What’s the can’t miss NZ delicacy I should search for when I visit in Feb?
(besides pāua and kina; they’re already on the list)

Mount Eden in #Auckland is a dormant cinder cone volcano which has important historic, spiritual, and cultural significance to the local M?ori. It has great views of Auckland. #NewZealand https://backpackandsnorkel.com/Auckland/#eden?utm_source=mastodon&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=tweepsmap-BaS

Oh my... An MG4 XPOWER spotted in Auckland already... 🧐
This is the 𝓈𝓅𝒾𝒸𝓎 MG4 with 320 kW, AWD and 0-100 in 3.8 seconds for under $70k. Blows me away that such performance used to belong to supercars and now you can get it for about the same price as a top-spec Rav4.
Gonna review it soooon. 😁
How about it Aotearoa!!
Let’s start with a ban on the big ones very soon — they’re polluting the air, driving climate change and endangering the lives of pedestrians and cyclists.
Stockholm is banning petrol and diesel cars from centre from 2025 https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/oct/11/stockholm-ban-petrol-and-diesel-cars-city-centre-2025-swedish-capital-pollution?CMP=share_btn_tw #nzpol #transport #auckland #wellington #christchurch #dunedin #hamilton #tauranga #nz #newzealand
Please make a quick submission now asking Fisheries NZ to ban bottom trawling in the entire Hauraki Gulf Marine Park
We’ve made it really easy.
I would pay modest sums of money for a cafe in #Auckland that stayed open late serving decaf coffee, herbal teas, and nonalcoholic beers.
I just watched this #Auckland council video from 2012 about the history of the Albert/Eden Ward. Any #NZTwits who grew up, live or even spent time in this part of #NewZealand there is some amazing images and stories. Well worth watching for the #NZPol too.
Thanks to education efforts over Covid19, we should understand what that means and what we need to do.
In the 2019 measles outbreak in Aotearoa New Zealand more than 30 percent of those infected with measles were admitted to hospital.
Former National minister, now Auckland Councillor and willing racist Maurice Williamson is outraged. "Someone" put up a couple of posters in the tearoom promoting correct use of Te Reo and understanding of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, so naturally Maurice has been tearing them down.
What a wanker.
For those thinking of attending tomorrow's event in the Auckland CBD, have a read of the official guidance:
If you are in Tāmaki Makaurau tomorrow, be aware of a couple of racist Stop Co-Governance rallies taking place.
2pm Shooters, New North Rd
7pm, Destiny Church
A bunch of us are planning to be there at the 2pm one to protest, please come along. Be aware that the Shooters crowd are not nice people, so take care moving through the area even if not protesting.
Look at all these rapid chargers installed in #Auckland for electric buses. As a person with a respiratory system this is great news (raw diesel smoke has been proven more dangerous than second hand cigarette smoke). Cleaner, quieter, healthier city streets are coming at long last.
This video of me racing across #Auckland was one of the more labour intensive ones I've made recently, but you'd never know because it's short and flows easily!
Check it out because you can also win the bike featured in it if you're in #newzealand
No catch. You can really win it. And it's $8500.
“Within the space of a few hours, you go from being that person who goes to work every day and pays their mortgage to have nothing”
I urge you all to read this article, it has so much in it: the intersection of climate and infrastructure changes; the effects of #floods on people; how they feel (and are) abandoned by the state; and tbeir attempts and strategies to deal with repeated #floods themselves, eg thinking of buying a dinghy #Auckland #NewZealand

Far out! Brian Tamaki was there to support the TERF but 2,000 turned up for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Parker was drowned out by the happy noises, drums and a siren and "pelted with paint". The Police escorted her away and she didn't get to speak a single word.
Well done Auckland!
Posie Parker says she needs six security guards to protect her. A Wellington security company has cancelled and she's having trouble finding a replacement.
"The activist said her Australian tour had been dogged by last-minute cancellations from companies including security and sound system operators."
Hi Auckland peoples. I have a friend who needs a place to stay in range of Auckland Hospital while she does a 3-month student placement (mid-March to start of June).
She used to be a neighbour and I can confirm she’s good people. If you know of anything (or have a hot tip) please let me know and I’ll pass it on.
Looking at Metservice updates, we can see #CycloneGabrielle is moving further offshore & heading east.
#Auckland has the only red warning - for wind
The entire east coast of the north island sees orange rain warnings, with a strong wind watch in #Tairāwhiti as well.
There’s heavy swells expected, especially towards the Wairarapa, as well.
This will help clean up& rescue a lot
They’re currently running to support getting everyone home from the Breakers game then that’s it.
Edited to say AT has said there are some busses still running, so if your train is gone you may be able to bus.
