Poll: Would your area benefit from a targeted rate to boost local transport projects?

Caroline Williams Reporter from Stuff

In May last year, the Rodney Transport Targeted Rate was introduced in north Auckland to fund high-priority local transport options, including bus routes, footpaths and park and ride facilities. The rate (an extra $150 a year/$2.90 a week) is expected to raise $46 million over 10 years and has already seen three new bus services to connect residents to the rest of the city. The RTTR is the first targeted transport rate within the Auckland region.

We'd like to know if you think your area would benefit from a targeted transport rate to kick-start local projects. Vote in our poll below and let us know in the comments.
