FIRST Union and the NZPSA have today released a report making the case for fares-free public transport for Tāmaki Makaurau.

The 40-page report draws on lessons from overseas experiences with fare-free public transport, and sets out different models for implementing fare-free public transport in Tāmaki Makaurau, concluding that fare-free public transport represents a sound and viable policy intervention.

The report is authored by New Zealand academic Jen McArthur, an Associate Professor of Urban Infrastructure and Public Policy at University College London.
