Let’s Make the Big Switch.
Internationally there is a shift from a dependency on cars in cities, to enabling more active transport for short trips. This shift is happening at such speed and scale we call this the Big Switch. It’s an exciting time for new healthier, vibrant, and equitable urban lifestyles.
Most car trips are under 5km, which is an easy 15 min ride on an ebike or scooter.
Aucklanders spend over 20 days stuck in traffic every year. What a waste of time.
NZ has promised to reduce emissions by 50% by 2030. Instead they are climbing…
New Urban Mobility.
As an Ākina accredited social enterprise, we’re committed to making a positive contribution. Each time someone uses a Locky Dock, it’s most likely a car trip has been saved. From our smaller networks in Whakatāne, to more extensive ones in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, every Locky Dock actively reduces emissions, reduces congestion and improves wellbeing.
Fewer vehicle kilometres travelled (VKT) per year. Less traffic, more fresh air.
Net social benefit from improved health and wellbeing for the community.
In carbon emission savings each year. That’s a lot of trees!
“Based on our analysis, the next 100 Locky Docks could reduce vehicle kilometres travelled by 2.5 million kilometres a year.”
