Public Transport in Auckland

hattip to RB at Public Address, this series about the roading lobby in Auckland says it all.

The only idea i ever had for PT in Auckland was to build a bicycle lift in the CBD but build it for height, not distance - say up Queen St to K Rd. You could get to Parnell, Ponsonby, Ak Uni on Symonds St etc all from the intersection of K Rd and Queen St. If it went straight from Britomart how cool would that be? Cycling downhill is just plain pleasant... Mind you, it'd only work at capacity when it wasn't raining, this IS Auckland after all. There is already one built somewhere (JGFI) so it's not crazy.
