That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)    receive the progress update provided on the Transport Emissions Reduction Plan

b)    note the scale of the challenge to meet Auckland’s transport emissions reduction target and that mode shift is the most powerful lever for reducing transport emissions

c)         support, in principle, the work to date on developing the Transport Emissions    Reduction Plan

 

d)    support the application of behavioural change and/or science to reducing transport emissions, noting that our communities need to be brought along on a journey in such a way that mode shift makes sense and improves lifestyles and wellbeing.

 

e)    provide the following feedback:

i)     Public and active transport needs to work for people to get from Point A to Point B in their everyday lives. This means:

                 A)       Public transport needs to be more accessible, frequent and reliable

                 B)       Routes need to consider all users for all purposes.

                 C)       Walking, cycling and public transport routes need to become a well-connected network that links up across the city, not simply paths and routes that stand alone.

                 D)       Public and active transport options need to become more affordable.

The Tamaki Path is an example of an opportunity for paths to be connected to create a network that links between neighbourhoods and communities, making its use practical.

 

Note that better services for walking, cycling, public transport, and assisted mobility options will have large equity benefits, providing options for those who currently experience transport disadvantage, which are often those who experience disadvantage more generally.
