Update: We raised almost $15,000 towards the ongoing Liberate the Lane campaign through GiveaLittle! Thank you to MediaWorks for the generous discount on bus spaces, to our match funders Electric Bike Team, Power to the Pedal, and Friends of Bike Auckland (you know who you are). Also, a very special shout out to The Funding Network for their support, and to everyone who donated, and shared the campaign wider.
If you’ve come to this page because you wanted to show your financial support to the campaign, you can still donate to us directly!
We’re beyond excited to share that our Liberate the Lane crowdfunding campaign has officially launched!
This is our current team’s first ever crowdfunding campaign and it’s kicked off this week! The crowdfunding campaign will be raising funds so that we can share the vision of a joyous, inclusive, climate friendly Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland to thousands more people; building awareness, and increasing public pressure to bridge this glaring gap in the heart of our transport system.
By sharing inspiring imagery on buses, we can directly reach the communities this is most relevant to: the North Shore, the CBD, and of course anyone who uses the Harbour Bridge. Together we will urge Waka Kotahi (NZ Transport Agency) that they can – and should – provide access for walking, cycling, and wheeling across the Bridge now.
Have a watch of the cool wee video made with the help of our wonderful supporters sharing what Liberating the Lane would mean to them.
