Auckland's mayor says he thinks a transport levy would be going ahead after a council meeting today.
Len Brown told Newstalk ZB a transport levy would form part of the 10-year budget due to be signed off at council today.
"It's not so much around whether we'll do the levy, but how much the levy should be," he said.
Mr Brown said the levy would be $99, or $2 a week for a residential ratepayer, and $159 for a business.

Mr Brown introduced the transport levy to replace a motorway toll or fuel tax, which the Government does not support.
The three-year "short-term" levy would fund about $500 million of extra transport projects, including a massive lift in cycling and fast-forward plans for a northwestern busway and busway to Orewa.
