As our largest source of emissions, transport is a key area of focus for Auckland. Improving our transport system also presents opportunities to improve equity, health and quality of life outcomes for Aucklanders too.

We’re looking for your ideas on how we can overcome barriers related to active (walking and cycling) and public transport uptake.

Make riding buses and trains free for those who travel within the same zone, or for those traveling to the next train station

I recently read an article about how VR technology is enabling more and more work to be done in virtual space. If I could see a lifelike projection of my colleagues, and interact them in a virtual workspace, with unlimited "desktop" and gesture based control, I wouldn't need to travel anywhere, except for the odd occasion where I wanted the personal, face to face flavour of interaction....

I use car sharing (Cityhop), but we have to return the car to the same spot where we got it. If we could return the car everywhere (such as in Germany), then car sharing could be used for commuting instead of just occasional outings or running errands.

A barrier to using public transport is the poor last mile.  For example, your home is too far from a bus stop, or bus and train timetables don't line up for you, no bike parking at your local station etc. If we can make the last mile easy, more people will get on trains and buses.  The trains are great now, clean, frequent and efficient.  Getting to the station not so much

1. Have buses that there first stop is say Panmure and other that stop at all stops. 2. More trains that go through Newmarket 3. Better services on the weekend to encourage people not to drive on weekends, weekend traffic is often far worse than weekday traffic!

Attach travel planners to local community organisations with the goal of a travel plan for every household and organisation. I understand there is travel planning offered through AT and some programmes delivered by SBN, but we need to upscale this enabling approach to everyone to make active transport a reality. Maybe AT / SBN/ Gen Zero/ Bike Akld  could provide a Train the Trainer approach? How could these people  bring this joined up thinking to problem solving/ removing barriers and apply...

AT should sponsor an app that encourages car-sharing.  This could be done primarily through businesses located in the same area to get momentum.

The focus with transport is getting from our home to our place of work as efficiently as possible.  But we never put the focus on the demand side - i.e. reducing the distance between; home & work, home & school; home and play, etc.  If we could move people's place of work or school to their neighborhood as much as possible, we would reduce the number of kms travelled by many millions. It would also improve the feel of the community. Currently, many organizations have their...

Commuting to town on the north western cycleway is something I am already doing, and it is great. However, the one bugbear that a lot of my friends have with it is that they don't want to risk getting soaked on the 30-40 min commute, or have to deal with the sunstroke on hot summers days. As a way to promote people who aren't keen cyclists to use the cycleway more often, and as a prevention method towards a more unpredictable climate, I feel like this could be a small step in the right...
