People prefer to travel by car

Re: railway comments by Jack Peake.

Jack Peake is living in a dream world. He has to put his dream to rest.

Why? The South Island Transportation Strategy did a report of how people prefer to travel in the Capital Regional District.

• 56 per cent were cars with one driver.

• 15.5 per cent were cars with one driver and passengers.

• 7.5 per cent were transit passengers.

• Five per cent were bicycle passengers.

• 14.2 per cent were walkers.

• 1.8 per cent other means of travel.

Also noted was trucking also became a more viable alternative for the island pulp and paper industry over using the railway.

Unbelievable!
