Darfield and Leeston bus service surveys

Environment Canterbury and Selwyn District Council would like your feedback on two proposed trial bus services: one between Darfield and Christchurch city, via Kirwee and West Melton, and the other between Leeston and Christchurch city, via Doyleston, Irwell and Springston.

As part of its Long-Term Plan, Selwyn District Council has committed to funding one return bus service daily, from Monday-Friday, on a trial basis from January to June 2019, as long as the community agrees there is a need for a daily commuter service and is prepared to support it.

We would like to know: 

  • whether there is community support for a daily commuter service, and
  • the times and locations for a trial service that would best meet the needs of your community.
