From Monday 24 January, Porirua City is at the red setting of the traffic lights protection framework. This means some changes to the way we work and live, as protections are in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community. Find out more
Cycling is becoming a major recreation activity in Porirua and we’re looking to make cycling more popular as a day-to-day transport option. Porirua City is working with the New Zealand Transport Agency to make our cycleways safer and more user-friendly with the multi-million dollar Urban Cycleways Programme.
Many Porirua residents travel by train to Wellington, Hutt Valley, or the Kapiti Coast for work and cycling is a great option to cut down the travel time getting to and from stations.
Bikes can be taken on Porirua trains free of charge or you can rent a cycle locker at the Porirua and Plimmerton Railway Stations to leave your bike safely while you’re at work – contact Greater Wellington Regional Council for details (04-830 4179 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Join the free and fun competition held every February, the goal is to see how many workplaces can get the most people to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more. There are awesome prizes up for grabs; new bikes, restaurant vouchers and lots more. Find out more about this challenge.
