The RPTP consultation process to date
In October 2012 Auckland Transport called for Aucklanders to have their say on the future of public transport in our city.
A total of 719 submissions were received on the draft Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP). Copies of these are available online.
We completed public hearings on the draft RPTP in early February 2013. For further information on the public hearings, including minutes. Please refer to the table below.
After considering all the submissions received, the Hearing Panel presented a report (PDF 609 KB)
to the Auckland Transport Board recommending changes to the draft RPTP.
In March 2013 the Board endorsed the changes to the draft RPTP recommended by the Hearing Panel. This enabled Auckland Transport to proceed with detailed local consultation on the proposed new public transport network for Auckland, a key element of the Plan.
The final RPTP was formally adopted by Auckland Transport on 23 September 2013.
Consultation on the New Network
Part of the RPTP is a proposed new public transport network for Auckland (New Network).
Local consultation and implementation of the proposed New Network is scheduled as follows:
North, Central, East and West Auckland
2014 - 2015
2015 - 2016
If you would like further information on the proposed New Network Consultations,please visit our consultation webpage.
About the RPTP
Auckland needs first-rate transport infrastructure and services to remain internationally competitive.
Improving public transport is a critical component of overall plans to lift the performance of Auckland’s transport system, improve quality of life for the city’s growing population, and building Auckland’s economic competitiveness.
The RPTP describes the public transport services and initiatives that Auckland Transport proposes for the region over the next 10 years and how these will be delivered.
