Rail is at the heart of more liveable cities and connected regions. We champion the benefits the industry delivers and work with our members to support greater use of safe, sustainable and efficient rail services.
We are the peak body for the rail sector in Australia and New Zealand, and advocate for almost 200 member organisations across the rail industry.
Our members include every aspect of the rail industry, including:
- The passenger and freight operators that keep essential rail services moving
- The track owners, managers and contractors that deliver a safe and efficient rail infrastructure network
- The suppliers, manufacturers and consultants that drive innovation, productivity and efficiency in the rail industry.
What we do
Our members are driven to support vibrant, sustainable and connected communities through greater use of rail across Australia and New Zealand.
We bring together industry and government to help achieve this ambition.
Our advocacy is informed by an extensive research program to ensure we offer solutions that are grounded in evidence and focused on delivering tangible value in our daily lives.
We believe the rail industry has a crucial role to play in the region’s sustainable development and growth, and know that the industry offers meaningful and rewarding careers for tens of thousands of people in the regions.
Our significant program of work is focused on supporting a strong advocacy agenda, and creating opportunities for the rail industry to network, collaborate and share information, and maximise the benefits we have to offer the wider community.
