The vision of the Group is:

“The Transportation Group is recognised as the foremost impartial and credible voice on transportation issues in New Zealand. Its perspectives are invariably sought when new policies and legislation are being developed. It makes a significant contribution to the major transportation debates of the day, often taking the lead in raising issues for consideration.”

The Group produces a regular newsletter (Roundabout) and is managed by a National Committee.

There are three technical subgroups available for those members with a specialist interest in the area:

Transportation Group Conference 2018 - Queenstown 21 to 23 March

The Transportation Group conference, will be in Queenstown on Wednesday 21 March to Friday 23 March 2018.

We expect well over 200 professionals to attend the annual event, which has been running for more than 40 years. The conference presents a unique opportunity to network and share ideas across our diverse and wide-ranging industry.

The topic for this year’s conference is “Then. Now. Tomorrow” which will encourage debate and papers in this area.  ‘Then’ is about reflecting and learning from the past but not dwelling on it.  ‘Now’ is what we are doing right now to transport people (and goods) and improve their lives.  ‘Tomorrow’ is about moving forward with consideration of the future and how people will live, work and travel. 

We would encourage you to join us, connect with the TG community and soak up what Queenstown has to offer!

The call for papers is now open and the conference is welcoming relatively informal Practice papers and more academically-minded Research papers. Hurry, submissions are due by 9th October


Sponsor the conference to strengthen your brand image, increase your visibility, and show your company's strong commitment to the niche Transportation Group industry. A sponsorship prospectus is now available for viewing:


Custom sponsorships are also available and can be tailored to your organisation's marketing goals and budget.
