Walking and cycling

AE004 Walking and cycling share of all trips by main urban area, aged 5 and over (%)

Main urban areas are population centres of 30,000 people or more as defined by Statistics New Zealand. Nationally, 20% of trips have been walking and cycling and have been largely unchanged since 2003/07.

With a quarter of trips, Wellington has the highest percentage compared to other urban areas.

AE001 Public expenditure on walking and cycling ($ million)

This is the expenditure on infrastructure for the purpose of walking and/or cycling. Spending has fluctuated significantly since 2010/11.

However, expenditure increased considerably from 2014/15 compared to prior financial years, partly to meet demand for more cycling infrastructure both near local roads and state highways.
