Could not find Purple Ribbon Bus

Very interested to read your article stating that 3,300 people used the Purple Ribbon Buses on New Year’s Eve as my two eldest daughters were out on New Year’s Eve and could not find a bus or Terminal 1 in Camana Bay (the advertised pick-up point there).

No one with Camana Bay security could tell them or us where Terminal 1 was. In the end, we collected our daughters and their friends and were disappointed as we would have been better off not thinking we could rely on this advertised service. Our friends had the same experience.
