About Transport Australia

We seek to improve public debate on strategic transport issues, ensuring transport professionals are at the table when Governments make decisions regarding transport policy, reform and infrastructure investment.

We offer leadership in the transport sector through:

  • professional development 
  • public comment and education
  • policy development
  • improving industry practice
  • celebrating achievements

As a national organisation with state based branches, TAs is the home for transport professionals in Australia.  Please click here to download a copy of the TAs Constitution.

Our History

In early 2021, TAs sought out to develop a comprehensive history of Transport Australia society including all of its past forms. Research indicated that TAs in its original form as National Committee on Transportation has records back to 1975.   Three name changes later, we have Transport Australia society which was officially formed in 2015. The chairs of TAs were able to be dated back to 1995 with 10 chairs recorded since then.  Read more about our history or watch the video version.
