Welcome to Congestion-Free Wellington

Why congestion-free?

We think Wellington needs to offer more congestion-free travel options to its residents and visitors.

  • a public transport system offering an attractive alternative to cars in the city
  • better walking and cycling so active transport is good for everyone from 8 to 80
  • measures like congestion pricing to discourage use of private vehicles

There will always be congestion, but people will be able to choose congestion-free alternatives.

Like gluten-free bread, you don’t have to eat it, but if you want to, the choice is yours.

Let’s stop being a city of captive drivers, where many people have no practical choice except to drive their cars.
