Every option being developed for the big-ticket items in Wellington's $6.4 billion transport plan will include mass rapid transit routes to both the eastern and southern suburbs.

The original proposal in Let's Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) was to create a mass rapid transit route from the central city to the airport. Later in the project it was revealed a route to Island Bay was also in the mix.

Now, LGWM Governance Reference Group chairman Daran Ponter has confirmed it's not a matter of one or the other.

Both routes will be included in every package of options set to be revealed to the public for consultation in early November.
