Greater Wellington's work is funded by a mix of rates, levies and external revenue. Regional rates, made up of general rates and targeted rates, make up 33% of our total revenue. Government subsidies (primarily for funding public transport) make up 42% and the water supply levy (charged to Wellington, Porirua, Hutt and Upper Hutt city councils) makes up a further 12%. The remaining 13% of revenue is from other external sources.
