As part of creating a successful multi-modal transport system we are working with our partners to offer a safer, more accessible and attractive network for cycling so that more Kiwis can choose to get about by bike.
Our investment in cycling supports the walking and cycling network, improvements to safety and accessibility, and helps revitalise regional economies with new tourism opportunities.

The National Land Transport Programme for 2018–21 contains the walking and cycling initiatives that the Transport Agency will fund.
The National Cycling Programme supports the investment in cycling through taking a broader approach.
In August 2014, the then government announced the $100 million Urban Cycleways Fund (UCF). This led to the $333 million Urban Cycleways Programme (UCP) being implemented from late 2014. The programme provided increased investment to accelerate the delivery of cycling networks in our main urban centres, and incentivised our partners to increase their investment in cycling and walking projects.
Find out how the Transport Agency is working with other government agencies and community groups to develop a connected cycling network that enables people to ride between urban centres and Great Rides throughout New Zealand.
