NZ's Original Great Ride

Rail Trail Numbers

Trail users comprise of those who complete the entire trail together with those who use specific sections for commuting and short ride recreation and this data is collected from 7 counters strategically located on the Trail.  It is important to note however, that the annual total and the graph (above) derives its data from the counters that best reflect most accurately only those who complete the Trail from start to finish.  

2015/16 - 13,406

2016/17 - 14,089

2017/18 - 14,392

The annual total is a conservative figure and does not include at least 80,000 users on the trail either commuting or using the trail for short ride recreation.
