If we want Tauranga to remain an attractive city where it’s easy to get around, we need to make it easier for people to travel without relying on their cars.
A key principle of the Tauranga Transport Strategy is that we should make the most of the existing road networks before we invest in high cost infrastructure. This includes:
- Improving planning to reduce transport demand;
- Encouraging uptake of walking, cycling and public transport;
- Encouraging alternatives to travel; and
- Better managing the use of the existing network.
The council's Transportation team are responsible for implementing projects that support the goals in the strategy. They are supported by council's Parks team, who provide walkways and cycleways that help connect up key routes across the city. Bay of Plenty Regional Council will be increasing investment to improve public transport. All this work is supported by subsidised funding from NZTA.
