The Wellington Transport Analytics Unit will support a more consistent regional approach to transport and land use planning and aims to deliver:

One Voice

By working together we support a regional approach to transport modelling and data analytics. We will work with stakeholders to ensure there is consistency of inputs, assumptions, analysis and interpretation, to ensure there is one voice across the Wellington region.

Effective use of Data

We live in a digital era which has seen our access to technology and information transformed over the past 20 years. The Analytics Unit will ensure we are using available, evidence based, data to best effect to monitor performance, inform transport models and ensure a consistent approach across the region.

Informed Decision Making

We will provide timely, accurate and consistent transport forecast and modelling information to enable proactive and timely investment to meet the needs of our customers and the strategic direction of the region.

A Centre of Excellence

By working together we are able to share resources, experience and learn from each other. The Analytics Unit is a dedicated team of specialist resources, it will utilise latest technologies, support the development of the team and improve knowledge and awareness of partner organisations. We are all about continuous improvement.
