Why does the government invest in cycling?

Why do the government and local councils invest in cycling? The NZ Transport Agency’s new benefits tool explains why, providing information about the key benefits of investing in cycling, for councils, communities and individuals.

The benefits include:

  • more liveable towns and cities
  • improved conditions for travelling within towns and cities
  • stronger local economies
  • reduced costs for councils
  • less impact on the environment, and
  • healthier and more productive people.
