New Zealand group calls for youth fare-free #publictransport

Free fares for university and school students will draw more young people to public transport, a youth lobby group says.

Howick Youth Council will present their views on public transport fares and the impact they have on youth to Auckland Council next Monday.

Deputy chairman Ben Fraser said free fares will help make public transport a more attractive option.

"Young people are often living on tight budgets and they don't have a lot of money for getting around,” he said.
