Palmerston North - Bus Stop Mayhem Forseen

Tranzwatching in Palmerston North, Te Ika a Maui, New Zealand

Palmerston North City Council is planning a $10 million new bus terminal, ideally incorporating both city and inter-city buses.  The current proposals - a saw-tooth type terminal where buses back in and out of bays (similar to Hamilton's Transport Centre) in the location selected however is seen as likely to create mayhem and potential for passengers to be run over by reversing buses, according to a city promotions officer.

Currently inter city coaches and shuttles and urban bus services depart from separate terminals, the urban bus station being located just off the main square.
