We'd like your feedback on proposed changes to bus route 3 in the Tainui St Kilda area.


Background

The current Route 3, at the Ocean Grove end, travels via some narrow streets in the Tainui St Kilda area, where it serves three schools but misses some key locations. We’ve had feedback from the community that some would like to see buses servicing accommodation providers, such as the Dunedin Holiday Park, as well as sports venues in the area.

In 2021, we proposed changes and sought feedback, but we have since improved the option and are seeking feedback again.

Let us know what you think about the proposed new route. Feedback is open from Tuesday, 15 November until the end of Tuesday, 29 November 2022.


Current Route 3

The current route, shown by the solid line in the map, travels along Tahuna Road, up Cavell Street and Marlow Street, before turning right into Royal Crescent; in both directions, with several stops along the way.


What are we proposing?

The buses in both directions will no longer use Marlow Street and Cavell Street. Instead, the bus will go directly down Culling Street from Culling Park and then turn left onto Victoria Road, on its way to Tainui. On the return journey, the bus will continue slightly further along Victoria Road, past Culling Street, turning right up Royal Cres. This change is indicated by the yellow dotted line and the arrows on the map below.

During the Safer Schools upgrades in 2020, we detoured the bus along Victoria Road and Culling Street, and found this worked well at the time. Moving the bus route to go further along Victoria Road to turn into Royal Crescent means the bus will travel in a more direct/timely manner.

Changing the route permanently will mean fewer buses on residential streets and better access for accommodation providers and sports venues on Victoria Road. School students at Musselburgh, Tainui and Tahuna Normal Intermediate will have good access to the buses.


Let us know what you think

This survey will be open until the end of Tuesday, 29 November 2022.

The questions are short and it takes around 5 minutes to complete. There is no need to register.

Thank you for your time.
