Holiday Passenger Traffic

Holiday Passenger Traffic

From the 13th December, 1929, to the 11th January, 1930, the New Zealand Railways carried 617,631 passengers, the revenue therefrom amounting to £241,947. This was an increase over a similar period last year of 13,348 in passengers and £9,287 in revenue.

“I desire” said the Minister of Railways (Hon. W. B. Taverner), “to indicate my satisfaction that the steps taken by the General Manager of Railways and his staff to create additional public interest in the Railways as a means of holiday travel have met with so hearty a response from the public.”
