Residents of a neighborhood in West Auckland were puzzled by a funny mistake they noticed on the road.

On Te Atatū Road, close to the local library, there was supposed to be a sign painted on the ground for a bus stop. However, instead of saying “bus stop,” it mistakenly read “bus sotp” in big yellow letters.

A worker from a nearby shop talked about the mix-up, mentioning how it was a bit embarrassing, especially for the person who made the error. Another local mentioned that the mistake was causing a bit of trouble for people in the area.

Auckland Transport, the organization responsible for the city’s transport services, acknowledged the mistake. Edward Wright, who works for Auckland Transport, explained that the error happened when a new bus stop was being set up as part of improvements to the bus service in the northwest part of the city. This new stop was intended to work together with another stop across the street to help people get around the town center more easily and connect to a major bus route called the Western Express.

Wright assured everyone that the mistake would be corrected soon, as long as the weather didn’t cause any delays.

He also mentioned that fixing the error wouldn’t cost Auckland Transport anything because the company that made the mistake would take care of it.
