Transport is vital to everyday life, from travelling to where we work and play, to accessing the goods and services we need. The transport system shapes the places we live and how we live.

The Wellington Regional Land Transport Plan 2021 is our blueprint for a transport network that enables a connected region, with safe, accessible and liveable places. It describes our long-term vision and objectives, identifies regional priorities and sets out the transport activities we intend to invest in over the next six years.

We’d like to hear what you think of the proposed direction for the region’s land transport network and the priority given to large new projects for the region.

In the Documents tab to the right you'll find a summary of the plan which gives a high level overview, and the full draft plan if you'd like to dive in to all the detail.

When you're ready you can complete the consultation submission form below, or if you have a prepared submission you can email that directly to RLTPlan2021@gw.govt.nz.

    Is there a safe cycle track down Ngauranga Gorge? The footpath down let when heading south is narrow. It is unclear where righthand side path gorge (if correct side) connects to cycle lane on Thorndon road Is there a cycle track that connects to Tawa cycle/walk track?

    GregM asked 3 months ago

    Thank you for your question. People on bikes can use the shared paths on either side of Ngauranga Gorge. There is also the Wakely Rd path that connects to Newlands. There are improvements being made to both shared paths over the coming months. Improvements to the connections of these paths at the Jardine Mile intersection is being progressed by the Let’s Get Wellington Moving programme in the next few years. Wellington City Council is planning to make the road between Johnsonville and Tawa bike friendly in the next five years.

    Can you confirm that the Airport Flyer service, having been relinquished by NZ Bus, is no longer and will never again be an exempt service under the Land Transport Management Act 2003.

    Thank you for your question Colin.

    Greater Wellington’s Metlink Group evaluates its public transport services on an ongoing basis to determine their ongoing viability based on a number of considerations including, but not limited to, public good, commerciality and patronage levels. 

    The commercial service operated by NZ Bus under the brand “Airport Flyer” was an exempt service until November 2020, when NZ Bus notified Greater Wellington of their intention to cease operating the service. 

    Through the current draft Regional Public Transport Plan 2021, Metlink has signalled its intention to create a new unit to operate a service between Wellington Railway Station and Wellington Regional Airport. 

    The tender process to establish this service is expected to be completed so that the service is in operation by 1 July 2021 or earlier. 

    Metlink is unable to confirm that any of its services will “never again” have a change in operational status as we cannot predict the potential future impacts that economic, social, technological, and environmental changes might have on our region over the coming decades.
