Land Transport Rule: COVID-19 Response (No 1) 2020

Published: | Category: COVID-19 , Land transport rules | Audience: General

This Rule has no effect after 10 October 2020. When Alert Level 4 restrictions were imposed in response to the outbreak of COVID-19, it became impractical or unreasonable for people to do tasks ordinarily required to enable vehicles to undergo periodic in-service inspection and certification, or to enable driver licences, endorsements and driver identification cards to be renewed. The objective of this Rule is to allow for vehicles to continue to be operated lawfully, and for drivers to continue to be licensed and to use endorsements and identification cards, during this time and subsequently. The Rule provides for the following documents to be extended until 10 October 2020:

Warrants of Fitness (WoFs), Certificates of Fitness (CoFs) and driver licences that expired on or after 1 January 2020.

COVID-19 impacts on transport

Published: | Category: General , Research programme , COVID-19 , Statistics & surveys

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency instigated a continuous monitor across New Zealand to assess the impact of COVID-19 on people's transport choices.  

The in-field questions started Friday, 3 April 2020 and the monitor will run a minimum of 24 waves. The nationally representative study offers insights into how people respond in their transport choices, their perceptions and attitudes to different modes of transport and how they change under the different COVID-19 Alert Levels.  

High level analyses, deep dive analyses and infographics will be published as they become available. Waka Kotahi has also created summarised tables from the COVID-19 impacts on transport research, and released them as open data to enable people to do their own analysis:

COVID-19 impacts on transport open data

The data shows how New Zealanders felt, behaved and travelled under the different COVID-19 alert levels.
