There's a claim proposed public transport zones for Auckland will discriminate against those who don't live on the North Shore.
Unless the plan is overhauled after submissions close on November 5, passengers will be able to travel from Long Bay to central Auckland for a two-zone fare.
But The New Zealand Herald reports it will cost a three-zone fare to travel from anywhere west of New Lynn or south of Onehunga or Otahuhu.
That's despite the fact those places are 10km from the city centre, compared with 20km from Long Bay to downtown.
Labour Party MP Phil Twyford says it's blatantly unfair to low-income working families in his area and South Auckland, who rely on public transport.
