We’re a great place to work

At the Transport Agency we support our people so they can be successful at whatever they do, and create the environment that motivates them to perform at the top of their game – and life’s too short not to have fun at work.

Make a difference, every day

Every New Zealander is our customer. 

Our work spans everything from helping a new driver to complete their licence application to participating in discussions on how cities plan and fund their transport needs, from promoting safer vehicles to reduce deaths and serious injuries to investing in expressways.
