Daran Ponter

for Greater Wellington Regional Council

About Me

I love Wellington, it’s a special place and home to my family, friends and wider whanau.


I’m married to Vickie and we have two children and the dog!


My background is in public policy and regional planning. I’m an experienced public servant.


Wellington is rated as one of the world’s most liveable cities. But we know it could be better and that means addressing those issues that really matter.

As your Regional Councillor representing Wellington City residents, transport is a big issue. I’m committed to:


  • Getting our bus system fixed

  • Improved bus priority lanes through the city

  • More early morning and late evening bus services

  • Affordable public transport, including:

    • Free off-peak travel for Community Services Card holders

    • Free weekend travel for school age users

  • Fully integrated ticketing for buses, trains and ferries

  • A fully-electric bus fleet
