Getting around: your options for a sustainable future

This field trip took place on 10-12 November 2020 during Road Safety Week. The content for this trip is available for ongoing use.

    Most of us get around in cars, either as drivers or passengers. Many of us also walk, bike, skate, or scooter, while some take the bus or train. The way we get around is developing all the time, and many of the latest options produce zero emissions, meaning they are better for us and the planet.

    In Wellington, New Zealand's capital city, private car use in Wellington is declining, whereas public and active modes of transport are on the rise. There are also several projects aiming to make streets and public spaces safer, more sustainable, easier to get around, and more accessible..

    During Road Safety Week, connect with people about the importance and value of roads and road safety in New Zealand, now and in the future. Find out about the latest innovations involving transport options and street design. Get around Wellington using different transport modes and compare them.
