The Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management Ltd (AITPM) is the peak body for traffic and transport practitioners in Australia.
We provide a central point of reference for practitioners in traffic and transport planning and management and have developed a niche position within the industry thanks to our concerted focus on the quality and level of engagement of our members.
From humble beginnings in 1966, the AITPM network is now extensive, with a database of more than 5000 practitioners receiving and accessing services and events. Our underlying strength is our membership. With current growth of more than 10% p.a., we now represent 1708 active individual and organisational members across Australia and New Zealand. Members of the Institute are linked primarily by a common vocational interest rather than by similar academic qualifications alone. We engage practitioners in the public, private, academic, and not-for-profit sectors, with members having diverse backgrounds and experiences, in fields of practice including:
Transport and Land Use Modelling
Intelligent Transport Systems
Our services and events address this broad range of areas of practice, exposing thousands of practitioners to the latest content, innovation, and technical perspectives every month. We have five state branches: Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia, along with members based overseas.
While our state branches are the local engine rooms of our activity, we are a truly national organisation, working together to share and grow the industry’s body of knowledge to ultimately improve transport outcomes for all communities.
Our ambitious vision for the industry
As the peak body for traffic and transport practitioners in Australia, it is our vision, that working together, the industry can achieve a sustainable, efficient, safe, multimodal transport system that is accessible by all communities.
To contribute to the achievement of this ambitious vision for the industry, our mission is to lead our members and practitioners to connect, collaborate, participate to advance their skills, capabilities, and knowledge.
In doing so we will be focused on:
Community | AITPM will grow a strong, connected, and supportive community of practitioners to enhance the resilience and capacity of the industry.
Collaboration | AITPM will facilitate collaboration and engagement across the industry to influence better outcomes.
Capability | AITPM will grow industry capability through sharing and developing knowledge and experience.
Governance and Organisational Excellence | AITPM will ensure the correct operational enablers are in place to allow us to fulfill our mission and objectives
