Rail and Bus Advocacy

We support and advocate for a regular passenger rail service to Wellington and a better designed local bus route.

Ōtaki has one bus route.   There is a view in the community that it is not well designed and that this has the effect of discouraging use.  A 2014 project was to identify the best route and to have that change introduced by the Greater Wellington Regional Council.
