At Auckland Transport (AT), we recognise that how we get around day to day can have significant impacts on our environment and our community. That is why we are working together to deliver safe, innovative, and sustainable transport for Auckland.
Sustainability is already at the core of our business with a strong focus on mode shift as one of the key initiatives to reduce transport emissions improving environmental, social, economic, and cultural outcomes. Significant investment has been made in public transport, walking, and cycling that will help transform Auckland’s transport system. The Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) and the Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) capital programme address the key priorities and direction for improving environmental, health, and growth outcomes of our network.
We also know that there is still more that we could do. With that in mind, we are refreshing our sustainability agenda. We want to be more bold and ambitious with the actions and decisions we are making now. What we do today will shape our city for future generations.
