Greater Auckland Inc was established in 2015 to provide commentary and encourage intelligent debate on transport and urban form issues, with a core vision for Auckland.

We advocate for better solutions to the challenges that cities currently face: equitable mobility and housing options, healthy urban environments and readiness for the impacts of climate change. We want to make our city a better place for everyone, you can join us in 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 are always looking for wider perspectives on improving cities and invite guest posts – if you have an idea take a look at our user guidelines or get in touch with us
