How will light rail benefit Aucklanders?

  • Help create a more liveable, connected city that’s easier, cleaner and safer to get around.
  • Provide greater access to suburbs that currently have limited public transport.
  • Encourage more development to meet the diverse housing needs of the city.
  • Connect with other public transport, walking and cycling links.
  • Stimulate investment along the route and bring jobs, shops and businesses closer to where people live.
  • Shifts away from cars, helping to reduce carbon emissions and meet our climate change obligations.
  • Less pressure for sprawl by unlocking opportunities along the route taking advantage of existing infrastructure and better transport options.
  • Reduce travel times.
