Wellington Transport Models – Technical Reports

Wellington Transport Models – Technical Reports

Updated 19 November 2019 9:39am

The most recent Wellington Transport Models project was completed in 2015. The Wellington Transport Models include the Wellington Transport Strategy Model (WTSM) and Wellington Public Transport Model (WPTM).

The project consisted of three parts:

  1. A data collection phase
  2. The update of the WTSM to a 2013 base year and
  3. Updating the WPTM to a 2013 base year.

The following technical reports and notes outline the development processes for these models.
