Let's Get Wellington Moving

At its heart, the programme seeks to deliver a multi-modal transport system that moves more people, goods and services reliably, with fewer vehicles. Mass transit will be a core element of our programme.

We will investigate and design a mass transit system to connect the railway station with the Hospital, Newtown, Miramar and the Airport.

Mass transit will improve travel choice through the city with attractive public transport on a second spine along the waterfront quays. Mass transit will help shape a more compact and sustainable city and region.

Mass transit will be part of the wider public transport network, with:

  • High frequency services (every 10 minutes or less)
  • Modern, high capacity electric vehicles with superior ride quality
  • Fast loading and unloading
  • Dedicated lanes with signal priority
  • High quality stations with level boarding
