Greater Wellington has established a public transport advisory group to provide consumer advice to help inform our Metlink business and our Transport Committee.

We need people with the ability to look at the bigger picture as well as unique community perspectives. As a whole the group will reflect the diversity of our region and provide:

  • Broad representation of perspectives and consumer needs
  • Governance experience
  • Geographic spread
  • Demographic diversity
