Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP) Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP)

We’re in the initial stages of putting together the next Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP) 2023-2031.

The RPTP describes the public transport network that Auckland Transport (AT) proposes for the region and identifies the services that are integral to that network. It also sets out the goals, policies, and actions that apply to those services and how they are operated.

You can view the current adopted RPTP (2018-2028) further down on this page.

Project timeline RPTP 2023-2031

Up to mid-2023 

  • Listen to key interest groups, public transport users, and the general public’s thoughts on how we should manage and improve public transport into the future.
  • Create a draft RPTP in line with feedback received, the agreed strategic direction for Auckland, and research.

Mid-late 2023

  • Aucklanders tell us what they think about the draft RPTP.
  • After taking onboard public feedback, the RPTP is finalised for adoption by the AT Board.

About the Regional Public Transport Plan 2018-2028

The AT Board approved the 2018-2028 Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP) at its 12 February 2019 Board Meeting. The public consultation period for the RPTP has closed and we have analysed the feedback. You can download the following reports for more details.

Transport is a key component of a city’s success. As you can see in the video below, Auckland is growing and as more people live here, the number of trips taken on our transport networks is increasing.

The space available for transport networks is finite. This means that we need as many people as possible to travel using efficient forms of transport; such as walking, cycling and public transport. These alternative transport options take less space and are more environmentally sustainable than private motor vehicles.

A well-used public transport system is fundamental to making Auckland livable. We need a plan to identify public transport needs and opportunities, and to set out the solutions.
