3.4       The draft Regional Public Transport Plan has been produced for the first time by the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee Agencies and was approved by Environment Canterbury in August for public consultation. This draft Plan proposes a 30-year strategy, containing the visionary change needed to prepare for a sustainable transport future. The plan outlines proposals for system improvements in frequency, reliability and environmental sustainability.  Public consultation and community engagement on the draft Plan runs from 17 September to 14 October 2018.
