Bell Gully assists in delivery of major New Zealand transport technology project
The signing of a contract to deliver an integrated super transport ticket for Auckland marks a significant milestone for many involved in the project, including Bell Gully as legal advisers. The Auckland Regional Transport Authority, in conjunction with its partner Thales and its funders the New Zealand Transport Agency and the Auckland Regional Council, has signed the contract introducing Auckland and New Zealand's first, true multi-modal transport ticket. The system will mean passengers will be able to use one smartcard ticket seamlessly between public transport trains, buses and ferries.
Partner-led pro bono programme supports those in need
Bell Gully's commitment to helping those in need has seen it develop a formal, partner-led, pro bono programme that has it targeting a $1 million spend within three years. In addition to formalising its relationship with a number of worthy charities, the firm has also forged valuable relationships with three community law centres, at a time when the centres were facing what could have been one of the most destabilising years of their existence.
