Transport Choices and Road Safety

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​What's your transport choice?

The purpose of Access Hamilton is to meet the changing travel demands of the city by providing an affordable, safe, responsive and sustainable transport system. We want Hamilton to be a city where it's safe and easy to get around.

In our unique urban setting, the distances travelled by people in cars are generally short and can easily be changed to active modes of travel.

You can also read about our current programme of safety and access improvement works supporting walking, cycling and public transport.​

​So how is it going?

Hamilton City Council works with NZ Transport Agency and Waikato Regional Council to monitor our shared transport network. Together we produce an annual report card on Transport choice, growth, safety and stories. Most of the data used in these report cards is freely available to the public via the Waikato LASS Open Data Portal, including traffic volumes, cycling and pedestrian counts, and Lime scooter trips.
