The Government Policy Statement on Land Transport (GPS) sets out how money from the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF) is allocated towards achieving the Government’s transport priorities. It’s likely that GPS will also provide direction for investment of other Crown funding, such as the Climate Emergency Response Fund.

For NLTF investment, the GPS sets out ranges for funding for activities such as public transport, state highway improvements, local and regional roads and road safety — we call these activity classes. Each GPS sets out the priorities for the following 10-year period and is reviewed and updated every 3 years. 

The Ministry of Transport is currently developing the next GPS, which will set the Government’s priorities for land transport for the 10-year period 2024/25–2033/34.
