Melanie Flanigan

Communications Manager

In my role as Communications Manager, my focus will be on ensuring a consistent industry voice across the ARA’s communication and engagement activities to support both our members and ARA’s strong advocacy agenda.

I am a communication and stakeholder engagement leader with experience in Government, large corporate environments and public transport operations spanning ferry, bus, passenger rail, light rail and new mobility modes.

I am passionate about working in transport and its contribution to liveability, sustainability, and economic outcomes; but also seeing firsthand the real and visible change this industry has on people’s lives and how communities’ function.
