Council-controlled organisations

Auckland Transport

Auckland Transport is a council-controlled organisation (CCO) of Auckland Council.

The establishment of Auckland Transport in 2010 marked the first time that all transport functions and operations for Auckland have come under one organisation.

Auckland Transport is responsible for:

  • the planning and funding of public transport
  • promoting alternative ways to get around the city
  • operating the local roading network.

See the Auckland Transport website if you want to know about:

  • parking fines and tickets
  • parking permits and mobility parking
  • vehicle crossings, roading, road works
  • public transport, bus lanes
  • street lights.

It is also responsible for preparing the Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) which sets out projects and services to be funded by Auckland Council and the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) over the next three years.

By working closely with Auckland Council, which sets the strategic direction for transport, Auckland Transport will also help implement the Auckland Plan and act consistently with the council's Long Term Plan.

Our objectives

Each year Auckland Council CCOs must complete Statements of Intent as required under the Local Government Act 2002.

Statements of Intent set out the objectives, nature and scope of activities undertaken and performance targets for each CCO.

This helps us achieve the objectives in our Long Term Plan and other strategic plans.
