An effective system for public transport and parking will contribute to a higher-quality environment in the core of the central city and will support the anchor projects.
The central Christchurch public bus interchange will efficiently serve the needs of passengers. It will encourage more people to use public transport and support the development of more attractive and popular bus services in the future.
With a set of principal bus routes, quality bus stops and a central bus interchange, people will have easy walking access to the core of the central city from key locations. Bus movements within a slow core will be kept to a minimum.
A single centralised bus interchange in the block bounded by Tuam, Colombo, Manchester and Lichfield Streets will provide the operational and administrative hub for the network.
- will encourage use of public transportation;
- will reduce bus movements in the central core of the city;
- will have sufficient scale to cater for growth to 2041;
- cycle storage facilities will be incorporated into the bus interchange;
- will be developed jointly by ECan, CCC, CERA, New Zealand Transport Agency and the private sector.
