👋 Submit on the government’s new transport policy

NOTE: Submissions to the draft GPS have now closed, but you can still sign the petition here.

The coalition government has published their draft Policy Statement on land transport 2024 (a.k.a. “GPS 2024”). It sets out the priorities for land transport in Aotearoa New Zealand for the next 10 years, starting from July this year.

The proposed policy locks in car dependency, and pushes freight off the rails onto our already-damaged roads. That means more traffic jams, higher costs, increased pollution, and more traffic deaths. This policy affects us all!

Transport and climate advocates strongly oppose the proposed transport policy. It goes against all evidence of what makes a more reliable, efficient, safe, and affordable transport system. Here, we pull together advice from experts & advocates who have read the document, so that members of the general public (like you!) can amplify their voice and easily write a submission for a better transport future for all.

Submissions close at noon (12.00pm), Tuesday 2 April 2024 - the day after Easter Monday
