Consultation status: closed 3 May 2017
We are actively supporting the Car Share Initiative currently operating in Auckland.
This initiative is in line with our goals such as:
- Reduce car dependency and improve community health by providing infrastructure and services for walking, cycling and ride sharing.
- Deliver an effective and efficient transport system that enables Aucklanders to make smarter transport choices.
Why the changes are needed
The concept of car share involves the provision of cars in select locations that can be booked through a website or phone and paid per hour. This has proven beneficial for inner city residents and businesses that don’t necessarily need to own a car but may find one useful from time to time.
We have identified an
- Shared Vehicles Only, At All Times. This would apply 24 Hours a day, every day.
The proposal received positive feedback with no concerns raised. After reviewing this feedback and other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
We expect to begin this work in mid-late 2017, subject to further design changes or funding issues.
