Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 29, No. 4. 1966.
A stopwatch check by one student has shown that an alignment of stops, with the car stopping at each stop, would raise the number of trips per hour from 13 to 17.
Mr. Pritchard does not think the expense of building stops out over the bridge-ways would be worth it.
The cable car is the one unit of the Wellington public transport system which has consistently made a tidy profit. The council has argued that it does not call for any special treatment as it is, just part of the overall transport system, even though it may run at a profit.
But a transport appeal court recently ruled otherwise, and this decision could hardly be discarded by the council in making its decisions.
