Increased mode share for pedestrians and cyclists

Updated 4 March 2019 1:01pm

Target: Proportion of journey to work trips (Census) by walking increases to 13.6%.

Target: Proportion of journey to work trips (Census) by bike increases to 4.6%.

Please note: progress towards this target will be updated when the 2018 census is available .

Target: Proportion of urban trips (Wellington CBD Cordon Survey) by walking increases to 20.1%.

The above figure shows the mode share for pedestrians in the cordon count morning peak. The proportion of pedestrians crossing into the CBD compared to other transport modes (cycling, cars, and public transport) has fluctuated from 16% to 19% since 2001 but the five year trend indicates an overall increase over this period. In 2018, 18.5% of those people crossing the cordon were walking. The 2025 RLTP target is for 20.1% of all trips crossing the Wellington City CBD cordon to be walking trips.

Taking into account both cyclists and pedestrians together, the active mode share of trips crossing the Wellington City CBD cordon in the AM peak between 2011 and 2016 increased from 18% to 20.4%.

The above figure shows mode share for cyclists crossing the cordon. The number of cyclists crossing the CBD cordon during the morning peak has increased by 9% in the last five years. From 2011 to 2018, the mode share of trips crossing the CBD cordon for cyclists has increased from 2.1% to 2.8% and the five year trend-line a slight upward direction in mode share. The 2025 RLTP target for this measure is 4.6% of trips crossing the cordon are cyclists.
