Prioritising buses on the road

We’re working to give buses priority on the road and make key bus routes more reliable.

Key facts

  • 70,000 bus trips every day in Wellington (nearly a third are for education).
  • Buses often take twice as long as cars for the same journey.
  • About 97% of Wellingtonians live within easy walking distance of a bus stop, but just 37% of people use the bus when travelling to the central city in the morning peak.

(Key facts from draft Bus Priority Action Plan 2019 (Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council).
