Transport temporary relief package

The government's temporary transport relief package, which includes reductions in fuel excise duty (FED), road user charges (RUC) and public transport fares, was announced on 14 March to support New Zealanders through the current global energy crisis, exacerbated by the war in Ukraine.

Road user charges (RUC)

From 21 April 2022 until 21 September 2022, road user charges will be cut by 36 percent across all rates.

The Government set this figure because it offers equivalent savings to the fuel excise duty cut of 25 cents a litre.

Road user charges (RUC) temporary reduction scheme

Fuel excise duty (FED)

A 25 cents a litre cut in FED came into effect on 15 March 2022, which reduces the price of petrol at the pump by 25 cents a litre. This reduction will end in mid-August 2022.
