Wellington Public Transport Spine Study
The Wellington Public Transport Spine Study, a key action from the Ngauranga to Airport Corridor Plan, was undertaken to help determine a future public transport solution for Wellington City – one that is high quality, modern and meets the longer term aspirations and demands of our city and region.
The Public Transport Spine Study (PTSS) is now complete and the full study reports are available below.
People were invited to give their feedback on the options between July - September 2013. Public submissions, along with responses from two citizens' engagement panels, were analysed and results were reported to a Hearings Subcommittee in late November / early December.
The findings of the hearings subcommittee informed the Regional Transport Committee's decision, on 4 March 2014, to take Bus Rapid Transit forward for implementation.
