National farebox recovery policy

Published: | Category: Public transport , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: Local & regional government

At its April 2010 NZ Transport Agency Board meeting, the board adopted the national farebox recovery policy.

The purpose of this policy is to encourage a greater focus on efficiency that may have been the case in the past, and to work with approved organisations (such as regional councils) to determine, on a case-by-case basis, what constitutes an equitable sharing of the costs between public transport users, ratepayers and road users through the NLTP, who pay for the provision of public transport services.

The links below take you to the full policy, with supplementary information including Q&As.
