An effective transport network is the lifeblood of the Wellington region.
Making sure that people and freight can move quickly and safely around, and in and out of the region is one of our main responsibilities.
We have high quality, well engineered and safe roads with many scenic walking and cycling routes. We celebrate the highest public transport usage in New Zealand and our ride matching service makes it easy for people to carpool.
All of our transport plans, projects and activities come from the Regional Land Transport Plan.
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.
Greater Wellington provides tools and resources for schools to promote safe and active travel, and address congestion and safety issues around the school gate.
Planning for walking is an essential part of the Regional Land Transport Plan. This plan seeks to improve safety and level of service for pedestrians and to increase the number of trips made by walking in our region.
More and more everyday people are discovering the benefits of getting around by bicycle. That's no surprise. Cycling is often quicker, more fun and definitely healthier than driving for short distances.
Greater Wellington manages the Metlink public transport network with support from central government. Passengers, ratepayers and road users all help fund it.
