Tauranga residents are no stranger to public transportation. But it appears that locals are more reliant on private vehicles.

The New Zealand Transport Agency released data indicating that 91% of the city’s population use cars to get around. This is a massive difference from the 2% who take the bus, the 3% who use a bike and the 4% who choose to walk.

The dominance of private vehicles in the city is also noticeable as compared to other main centres in New Zealand. The closest is Hamilton at 8%, closely followed by Auckland at 85%. Wellington brings up the rear at 54%.

Multi-awarded car dealer Sheaff Vehicles is no stranger to this information.
