MOTAT

Gifford Jackson and the Auckland Rapid Transit scheme.

Discover just how close Auckland came to a world-class integrated public transport system in the 1970s. This exhibition, in the Walsh Memorial Library, tells the story of the Auckland Rapid Transit (ART) scheme through vivid illustrations by New Zealand’s ‘godfather’ of industrial design, Gifford Jackson.

Jackson was employed to develop concept drawings of the interior and exterior design of the ART locomotives and carriages. The ART project brought together a team of engineers, town planners and others to plan a rapid rail system – nicknamed ‘Robbie’s Rapid Rail’ after its staunchest supporter, Mayor Sir Dove-Myer Robinson. The ART system never eventuated.

The Walsh Memorial Library is located at MOTAT 1 on Great North road. Open hours are Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. | Normal MOTAT admission fees apply.
