Pōneke / Wellington Transport Survey

The Pōneke / Wellington Transport Survey is an annual online survey of Wellington City residents. This survey was introduced by Wellington City Council in 2023.

Transport is crucial to support the functioning of cities and enable individuals to reach places of work, study, and play. Transport impacts the environment and public health and is at the core of efforts to mitigate and respond to the climate change and ecological crisis. A high-quality transport system can help make cities more liveable and improve wellbeing of residents.

Understanding current travel patterns is integral to informing future strategic initiatives. This survey provides insights into Wellingtonians’ travel patterns and their perceptions of the city’s transport system. The survey captures responses from adults who live in Wellington City.

The findings will enable long-term monitoring of residents’ perceptions, provide data for Wellington City Council’s annual reports, and inform the evaluation of selected transport projects and programmes.

Initial analyses are providing valuable insights into residents’ travel to work and children’s travel to school.
