Herald Reports on What Ministry of Transport picked up on last year

 

Slowly but surely. I could hear the passengers on the platform getting rather excited as their train pulls in

The Herald on Sunday evening published a story using Statistics NZ data on Auckland’s commute patterns between 2001 and 2013.

Commuting interactive: How transport has changed in New Zealand

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.
