Public Transport Users Association Committee Meeting

By June 3, 2007No Comments

Founded in 1976, the Public Transport Users Association (PTUA) is the recognised consumer organisation representing passengers of public transport. The PTUA is a non-profit, voluntary organisation with no political affiliation, which lobbies governments and public transport authorities in the interest of all users of public transport.

I became actively involved in the PTUA in late 2004, when I founded the Outer East Branch to provide a local and vocal presence on public transport advocacy for outer eastern residents. Since this time I initiated a branch for Melbourne’s South East and was recently appointed Vice-President of the association in 2006.

The main PTUA committee meets on a monthly basis to provide an update on activities and strategies to advocate for public transport improvements.
