Transport

7.1 Transport

Waka

We manage the transport network so it is sustainable, safe and efficient.

What we do

A well-planned, efficient transport system, which allows for the easy movement of people and goods to and through the city, is critical for economic growth and for residents’ quality of life. Between 200,000 and 300,000 people use some form of the city’s transport network every day.

Wellingtonians are enthusiastic users of public transport and an effective public transport network helps reduce congestion and reduces the city’s carbon emissions. A high proportion of the city’s residents walk and cycle to work instead of using private cars.
