As the national association for transport professionals, AITPM is focused on leading members to connect, collaborate, and participate to advance their skills, capability and knowledge to support a good transport system and great places.
AITPM and its members support a vision of a sustainable, efficient, safe and accessible transport system. Inclusivity is a key challenge underpinning this vision and as such AITPM is introducing a new Inclusive Mobility Program to shape progress towards delivering this vision
Our vision for inclusive mobility
Our vision is for equitable mobility and access for all people regardless of their ability, background or circumstance.
Through our Inclusive Mobility Program, AITPM will lead the transport community to create inclusive places, systems and networks.

Inclusive Mobility Steering Committee
An Inclusive Mobility Program Steering Group has been established to provide governance, strategic direction and be a decision-making body. The Steering Group will agree key issues and drive program activities and provide governance, leading the Inclusive Mobility Program Task Group in delivery of activities.
The Steering Group will set clear objectives for program activities and be outcome driven.
The Steering Group will work proactively with AITPM members, the AITPM CEO and Board, industry and government to engage, advocate and educate to deliver on the Inclusive Mobility Program vision.
The Inclusive Mobility Program Task Group will participate in the collation and development of research and ideas related to Inclusive Mobility, by taking on specific activities associated with the following themes:
AITPM is pleased to be partnering with AECOM to support the delivery of the Inclusive Mobility Program
AECOM is proud to champion inclusive mobility in partnership with the AITPM. As an enabler for well-being, health, economic viability, and community building, we recognise the vital role transport plays in enabling people to fully participate in society.
Transport mobility and accessibility can be experienced very differently depending on everyone’s personal circumstances. We want to break down barriers to mobility and access in our society by leading the debate and challenging our industry to create equitable, accessible cities and regions for all. Together with the AITPM, we look forward to supporting research and education and advocating for inclusive policies and actions.
