How the Regional Land Transport Programme has considered the transport disadvantaged
From: Anatole Sergejew
Dear Auckland Transport,
Section 35 of the Land Transport Management Act 2003 requires Auckland Transport (AT) to consider the needs of persons who are transport disadvantaged when preparing any programme or plan. Appendix 6 of the AT Regional Public Transport Plan 2018-2028 identifies groups more likely to be transport disadvantaged in Auckland, including:
1. people with low income,
2. new immigrants and
3. high deprivation neighbourhoods.
Could you please advise how and the degree to which the current Auckland Regional Land Transport Plan including the Regional Public Transport Plan has identified and considered the needs of transport disadvantaged persons from these three groups.
Thanking you in anticipation
