Transport Plan open for consultation
A new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) network through central Wellington, faster and more frequent train services and a simpler fare system are all part of the draft Regional Public Transport Plan, and we’d like to know what you think.
The draft plan, our blueprint for public transport in the Wellington region over the next six to eight years, aims to create world-class public transport that feels great to travel on, is simple to use, and takes you where you want to go quickly.
A new BRT network through central Wellington will speed up travel times, with a new network of services, and give a lot more people access to highfrequency bus routes. Connections with other services and modes will be more frequent and simpler, you’ll use one card for all your trips and you’ll pay only one fare for your entire journey regardless of how many trips are involved.
To get the most out of the new network, the Wellington City bus fleet will need to be renewed. We’re interested to know what you believe is important for a future bus fleet.
Train commuters from areas such as Wairarapa, Upper Hutt and Kapiti will have more reliable and faster services.
There’ll also be more peak services from key metropolitan stations such as Waterloo and Porirua.
