Getting to work

Greater Wellington has a range of sustainable transport initiatives available free of charge for workplaces. These are designed to increase numbers of people travelling to work by sustainable modes. The 2013 census document and maps at the bottom of the page look at recent travel behaviour to work and how this has changed since 2006.

Here are some examples of free workplace sustainable transport initiatives:

Let's Carpool

Let’s Carpool is a ride sharing website administered by Greater Wellington. The secure website does the hard work of finding carpooling partners for journeys to work, to events or for one-off trips. If you do not already have someone to carpool with, use Let’s Carpool to find a match and start saving on fuel today.

Making your workplace transport friendly

There are a number of easy, free or cheap actions workplaces can put in place to promote sustainable transport options to their staff.

Active a2b

Active a2b encourages staff to walk or cycle for at least some of their commute, and reap the health and wellbeing benefits.

Here’s what some of our participants have to say about the programme.

“Since joining the Active a2b it has encouraged me to walk the final 6 km over the Wainuiomata hill 2-4 times a week!  On my first month of recording my kilometres I clocked up a total of 67 kilometres and saved $20 in bus fare!!”
