A better way to commute for Waimakariri residents

What's being considered? Waimakariri Park & Ride consultation

Direct commuter buses from Rangiora and Kaiapoi to central Christchurch are being considered for when the Northern Motorway extension opens mid-2020.

The new carpool lanes, at the Tram Road on-ramp and on the Christchurch Northern Corridor, will allow direct buses to skip congestion, particularly across the Waimakariri Bridge. Taking the bus would also save you money otherwise spent on petrol and parking, be more environmentally friendly by reducing emissions, and give you back some time in your day.

Simply put, we envisage these services making the commute stress-free.

Public consultation

Consultation has now closed. This ran from Monday 11 November until Sunday 8 December 2019.

Environment Canterbury and Waimakariri District Council will now consider all feedback and, depending on the level of support for the direct commuter bus services, the opening of new Park & Ride facilities and start of the direct commuter bus services will be timed to be as close as possible to the opening of the Northern Motorway extension.

We expect to be able to provide an update on the feedback received, early in the new year.
