Transport is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses in Auckland. There are many advantages to encouraging workers to use public transport:
- more options for staff to get to and from work
- reduces demand for parking
- health benefits: walking to and from the bus stop or train station is an easy way to exercise and burn calories
- less traffic congestion around the workplace.
If your workplace is nearby to a bus stop, terminal or public transport hub, commuting by bus, train or ferry could be a fantastic sustainable travel option.
With enhanced New Network connections and the introduction of Simple Fares, taking public transport has never been easier – potentially even saving you time and money in the process.
Give public transport a go
Auckland Transport’s Give it a Go public transport trial is available at no cost to select businesses and organizations who want to encourage staff to use public transport. Give It A Go gives eligible staff a chance to trial the bus or train for 2 weeks.
