Young Transport Professionals

Connecting the next generation of transport leaders

We give young people the opportunity to hear from industry leaders, learn about new technologies and innovations in transport, and connect with other young people in industry.

Whether you are in the field of engineering, safety, community, project management and planning, HR or others, the Young Transport Professionals will help you build an understanding of other disciplines in industry, connect you with industry leaders and empower you to grow your professional network.



We invite young professionals and students interested in, or working in transport to become a member of the Young Transport Professionals. Learn more about what's going on in transport and connect with other young people in industry. Membership and events are free - join today! 



Our membership has grown consistently since the group was founded in late 2014.



disciplines represented

Our members work across a variety of disciplines - from engineering, safety, community, project management and many others - to make up a diverse network of young professionals in transport. 



companies represented

Our members are employed by over 70 different transport organisations from around Victoria, making our events a great way to build a strong professional network for the years ahead. 



We host a number of events for members throughout the year, including forums, site visits, networking and social events. As our membership is comprised of young professionals across different disciplines, our events explore a broad range of topics relevant to transport and transport infrastructure projects in Australia. 

At our quarterly forums, key industry figures, experienced transport professionals and members are invited to share their insights.
