Greater Auckland Inc was established in 2015 to provide commentary and encourage intelligent debate about transport and urban form issues, with a particular focus on Auckland. We want to make our city a better place for everyone.

We advocate for better solutions: transport options, housing choice, better design. We try to encourage intelligent debate on these issues – you can join the conversation here on this site.

The Greater Auckland website began in 2008 as the “Auckland Transport Blog”, later simply “TransportBlog”. We’re not associated in any way with Auckland Transport.

A number of writers have contributed to Greater Auckland over 12 years and 6,000+ articles. We run guest posts – contact us if you have an idea.
