INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS IN NEW ZEALAND

The paper begins with an outline of transport in New Zealand, current applications of ITS technology including two major projects which are under way in Auckland. Also briefly described are three ITS products developed in NZ and three major public transit proposals in Auckland. In looking towards the future, the paper sets out the main factors and their expected influence on ITS implementation in NZ. ITS technology is currently being directed towards private independent transport. This is assisting, if not creating, the decline in the proportion who use public transit - that is not sustainable. It is suggested we should be evaluating our transport projects on a more comprehensive basis, such as including the benefits of increased land use activity. Firstly, we should be undertaking more research to better understand and document the socioeconomic effects of ITS technology; and, secondly and more importantly, we should be incorporating innovation and new ideas into the evaluation of transport projects.
