Record $31 billion investment to help Auckland build back better
- New Community Connect initiative to give half-price fares for 200,000 Community Services Card holders to roll out next year
- $1.5 billion for local boards and walking and cycling initiatives to see cycleways completed through the isthmus - $600 million more than previous package
- $1.3 billion for buses and ferries to help boost public transport trips by 91 per cent - $500 million more than previous package

The Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) 2021-31 package invests $31 billion into critical transport infrastructure and services across Auckland. ATAP largely reflects and builds upon the $28 billion 2018 package, which focused on developing a rapid transit network, walking and cycling, safety and unlocking growth.
