PedBikeTrans is an independent, not-for-profit institute which provides networking and educational opportunities for transport professionals and those with an interest in walking and cycling.
Our mission is to connect and share knowledge between walk and cycle practitioners and enthusiasts. Through this, we aim to promote excellence in active transport planning and design through the sourcing and sharing of best practices and innovation from Australia and around the world.
PedBikeTrans is managed and led by fellow transportation professionals, working in both public and private sectors.
