Our purpose

A great journey is easy, safe and connected. The Transport Agency is focused on providing one integrated land transport system that helps people get the most out of life and supports business.

We look after the national transport system with our partners, today and for the future. We’re innovating to make sure the system is efficient and sustainable, unlocking opportunity and keeping New Zealand moving.

We’re working to deliver our customer promise – great journeys to keep New Zealand moving.
