Public Transport

24 Feb 2020

Public transport

Public transport is one of our largest portfolios. It is funded by a combination of rates, user-pays and grants from the New Zealand Transport Agency.

Expenditure on public transport in the draft 2020/21Annual Plan is higher than predicted in the Long-Term Plan due to:
  • revision of inflation assumptions
  • increase in bus service capacity and frequency
  • retendering of bus contracts
  • changes to the Employment Relations Act
  • new direct bus services from Rangiora and Kaiapoi to the central city.

The network of buses, ferry and total mobility services is driven by the Canterbury Regional Public Transport Plan. In commenting on this transport plan, the community said they wanted to reduce emissions and improve public transport services.
