Funding assistance rates (FARs) are the funding contribution, represented as a percentage, that we make to councils and other approved organisations for eligible projects and activities.

As part of the development of each National Land Transport Programme (NLTP), we review and set the FAR for each local authority. This is in line with requirements under the Land Transport Management Act 2003.

The overall average for FARs is 53%. This is paid to local government from the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF) for local land transport activities approved for funding within the NLTP, such as local road maintenance and improvements, public transport services and cycling improvements.

We share the costs of the land transport network, recognising there are national and local benefits from investment in the network.
