From the files of: You know March Madness is really mad when:
Extra afternoon bus peak services: 881 – From 25 Symonds St to Constellation via Busway provided by Party Bus. 2/2 AK

These buses are complete old dungers and in no way meet today’s bus standards but I guess they’re also better than no bus at all. Other than when being used as party buses they are also commonly found on the North Shore running school bus services (so they have HOP readers). The sooner we can get more double deckers the better.
Even these extra buses might not be enough though. This is the bus stop at Victoria Park a few days ago in the afternoon peak.
