Rodney Transport Targeted Rate Rodney Transport Targeted Rate

The Rodney Transport Targeted Rate (RTTR) was introduced mid-2018 to accelerate transport investment in the Rodney Local Board Area. Ring-fenced for transport projects not included in the Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP), the RTTR supports and funds transport services identified as a priority by the Rodney community. 


Project status: Implementation.
Project zone: North / North-West.


Project overview

  • New bus service from Westgate to Albany (via Riverhead and Coatesville).
  • Park & Ride at Warkworth.
  • Park & Ride at Huapai or Kumeu.
