This research set out to show how the transport sector contributes to better living conditions for all New Zealand citizens through investment in related capital.
Maximum wellbeing benefits will be achieved by ensuring that everyone has access to high quality, low-carbon, transport systems that promote health and social connection and generate high levels of travel satisfaction. The built environment, especially urban density, has a significant impact on the viability of active and public transport systems.
