Australasian Railway Association
The Australasian Railway Association (ARA) is the peak body for the rail sector in Australia and New Zealand.
We represent more than 150 member organisations including passenger and freight operators, track owners and managers, suppliers, manufacturers, contractors and consultants. Members include listed and private rail-related companies, government agencies and franchisees.
The ARA is a Company Limited by Guarantee with a board made up of an independent Chairperson, the Chief Executive Officer, eight General Directors and four Industry Directors. Four executive committees report into the ARA Board to direct the ARAÕs work program. We have numerous working groups that work collaboratively to develop policy and improved practice for government and industry.
