Increase the supply and use of low-emissions transport modes

Section: 6.3. Building attractive and inclusive cities


Transport network planning and funding entities should:

  1. Improve the quality, speed and reliability of public transport to major employment centres.
  2. Improve active transport infrastructure, starting with low-cost solutions such as improving pedestrian crossings and reallocating existing road space to provide safe cycling facilities.
  3. Reduce barriers to the cost-effective implementation of low-emissions transport modes and streamline costly resource management and local government consultation processes.
  4. Increase certainty of funding to enable low-emissions transport modes to scale up efficiently.
  5. Ensure all options considered for investments are subject to appropriate cost-benefit analyses.
