Auckland Transport has been established as a council controlled organisation (CCO) with eight board members. A CCO is a company or organisation in which a local authority controls 50 per cent or more of the votes, or has the right to appoint 50 per cent or more of the directors or trustees.
Auckland Transport’s activities are directed and guided at a strategic level by the board of directors:
Five directors are appointed by the government to the board of Auckland Transport and will serve a term of one to three years with none serving longer than three years.
A further two directors are appointed by the Auckland Council to serve on the board during their council term.
A representative from the New Zealand Transport Authority serves as an advisor to the board.
