bus with earsIn July 2018 we made some major changes to Wellington’s bus transport network. This involved creating a more efficient network design (routes, bus stops and timetables), high-frequency routes and more services, more effective transfers and some improved off-peak services (especially at weekends).

As with any project of this size, it’s usual to review outcomes to check how we did against key objectives, what we learned and what still needs to happen.

In December 2018 we commissioned an independent post implementation review by LEK Consulting Australia Pty Ltd.

This report recommended a number of changes and a team has been brought together to work on implementing the next steps. By far the largest part of this programme is a review of the bus network design - to look at what works well and what changes may need to be made.

We will be engaging with customers across the region through a range of activities including focus groups, public drop in workshops and meetings. There is also a Have Your Say online forum (external link) .
