Auckland Conversations: Transportation in New Zealand’s Biggest City

RAPS is pleased to welcome Darren Davis, principal public transport planer at Auckland Transport to discuss Auckland’s new network for public transport and $124 million 3-year cycling plan encompassing 52km of separated cycleways.



This is a great opportunity to see what planning international cities do in terms of transportation and what challenges and successes they have had.

All Ryerson planning students are invited to join us for an engaging evening. This event will take place in SBB 312 at 3:30pm on Tuesday, October 6th.
