Regional Land Transport Strategy
The Bay of Plenty Regional Land Transport Strategy 2011 - 2041 (RLTS) sets the direction for the region's transport system for the next 30 years. The Strategy is important for a number of reasons: it influences how the region's transport funding is used, and it provides direction to organisations, such as city and district councils, and the New Zealand Transport Agency, as they develop and implement transport projects.
Who's responsible for the RLTS?
The Regional Transport Committee is responsible for preparing the RLTS. The Committee is a regional governance body with representation from the Bay of Plenty Regional Council, the region's district and city councils, the New Zealand Transport Agency, cultural interests, and people drawn from the wider community to reflect the objectives of economic development, safety and personal security, public health, access and mobility, and environmental sustainability.

Annual Report Card
The annual RLTS report card tracks a range of transport indicators to allow trends to be measured over time, for example, traffic flows, public transport usage, and the amount of freight carried by road and rail. The Transport Monitoring page contains the most recent RLTS Annual Report Card and its associated datasets.
