Commuting interactive: How transport has changed in New Zealand7:37 PM Sunday Jan 25, 2015 Harkanwal Singh ‘s Opinion
Commuting patterns have changed remarkably in Auckland depending on the location of the workplace, according to a Statistics New Zealand report released earlier this month.
The above interactive map shows the change in commuting patterns for every suburb(area unit) in the country.
Car use is still the predominant mode of commuting to work. Readers can switch between the layers of map using the options on upper right corner to see how this has changed since 2001.
The purpose of the interactive map is to help reveal changes in commuting patterns across the country.

The report shows as expected those in the main City Centre or near it will use public transport in comparison to South Auckland which will use the car more.
To save me going through this all again I am going to link my Auckland Commuting Journey Series that looks at our commuting patterns and why. The series was based on a Ministry of Transport commissioned report.
AUCKLAND’S COMMUTING JOURNEYS – A SERIES. #MAJOR NON CITY CENTRE EMPLOYMENT CENTRES OVERVIEW (this one looks at South Auckland commute patterns (apart to and from the Airport) which are different to most other travel patterns in Auckland)
Well worth the read especially if one is wanting to undertake transport planning to better serve Auckland than current.
