The Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management Ltd (AITPM) provides a central point of reference for practitioners in traffic and transport planning and management. Members of the Institute are linked primarily by a common vocational interest rather than by similar academic qualifications alone.

Traffic Planning and Management is an integrated activity involving traffic management and operations, transport planning, economics, freight, road safety, public transport, and non-motorised transport modes.

The AITPM network is extensive, with its underlying strength being its own membership. The Institute started in 1966 and now has in excess of 1000 members and corporate members across Australia and New Zealand.

We have five state branches: Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

The membership is evenly spread across all age categories and continues to grow each month. As such the AITPM is regarded as the peak traffic and transport body for practitioners in Australia.

AITPM'S VISION is to provide leadership in traffic and transport by contributing to the development and management of a transport system that benefits all Australians.
