Generation Zero are running petition targeting the Auckland transport system. You can sign it here.
Auckland needs a transport network free of congestion in order to become a livable low carbon city.
Local government elections are coming up in Auckland we want Auckland’s leaders to sign on this vision for Auckland by making a public statement supporting it. Politicians will listen to the people who vote for them so sign the petition to show them that Auckland deserves more from their transport system that provides them with a genuine choice. By investing in a congestion free network Aucklanders will have the freedom to choose between their cars and an efficient public transport system finally.
In association with our friends at Auckland Transport Blog we have developed the Congestion Free Network as an alternative to the ITP (integrated transport programme), which is the current transport strategy for Auckland.
A network free of congestion is a high frequency public transport service of rail, buses and ferries on dedicated infrastructure separated from roads, with a ‘turn-up-and-go’ rate of at least every ten minutes or better.
