Dr Sara WaltonWhat we’re doing

Our aim is to explore opportunities for firms to create new business opportunities in the transport of the future. Examples might include developing or selling new fuels, new types of vehicles, retrofitting cars with electric motors, setting up car-share schemes, or running driver efficiency training.

We will be conducting market research to examine different business models and to understand barriers, opportunities and threats to entrepreneurial activity in New Zealand’s transport future.

What we’ve found out so far

This workstream in ongoing at the moment and more results will be released later this year.

The key drivers and barriers for change are depicted below. For how we might tip the balance of these please see the briefing on ‘Transport in New Zealand’ by clicking here.
