National's transport budget concentrates on expensive motorways to the neglect of all else.

The Green plan will deliver far more and cost less. We will make a substantial investment in a large number of projects that will get our towns and cities moving against National's narrow focus on a small number of expensive motorways. We will:

  1. Ensure city buses and trains run every few minutes at peak times.
  2. Invest at least $100 million a year in new safe, separated walking and cycling infrastructure.
  3. Boost regional transport spending, including revitalising the rail transport backbone.
  4. Deliver our Student Green Card giving students free access to off-peak public transport

Auckland is a key part of a successful transport plan. It deserves a network to meet its aspirations to be a world class city, including projects like the City Rail Link, which National is delaying.

The Green Party will implement the Congestion Free Network - a comprehensive transport network with integrated trains, buses and ferries that will make getting around Auckland faster and easier.

By 2020, we will:

  1. Complete the City Rail Link, cutting train travel times by up to 28 minutes per trip
  2. Build a rail extension to Mt Roskill (with further rail extensions to the Airport by 2025 and the North Shore planned by 2030)
  3. Electrify the rail network from Papakura to Pukekohe
  4. Build a new bus lane on State Highway 16
  5. Extend the Northern Busway to Albany and Newmarket
  6. Establish a new high quality bus service across the upper harbour
  7. Extend the AMETI Busway into Ellerslie and Manukau

The plan includes a $1.3 billion capital investment into the City Rail Link (60 percent of the cost), and $825 million into dedicated busways and city bus centre improvements.

We also have ambitious plans for transport in Wellington and Christchurch.
