Consultation has concluded

Thank you for having your say on the draft RPTP

In September and October 2018 we sought your feedback to help shape the planning, funding and delivery of public transport in Canterbury over the coming 10 years and beyond.

The draft Regional Public Transport Plan describes the public transport system that Environment Canterbury, in partnership with local councils in Greater Christchurch and Timaru, proposes to fund and operate.

The Plan, developed in close collaboration with the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee (NZ Transport Agency, Canterbury District Health Board, Christchurch City Council, Selwyn District Council and Waimakariri District Council), and Timaru District Council, sets out the outcomes, objectives and policies that apply to the public transport system.

The Plan focuses on a few key areas, and highlights the visionary change needed to prepare for evolving technologies and to take us into a sustainable future.

  • Frequency
  • Technology
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Financial sustainability
