The Future of
Movement is here

Your National Transport Research Organisation

NTRO is developing new knowledge, innovation, standards and specifications in moving people and freight for Australia and New Zealand.

We offer innovative research and practical solutions to integrate planning, operations and research across all modes of transport including roads, rail, ports and airports.  Developed by the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) in response to the shift towards multi-modality in transport policy and operations, NTRO is working to secure resilience for our national transport future. NTRO is committed to ensuring that new knowledge is used to create world’s best practice across all modes of transport. NTRO pulls together multi-modal transport solutions and helps the sector embrace new technologies and materials, to tackle next generation issues across the sector. Whether it’s road, rail, airports or ports; public, private or active transport; and people or freight, NTRO supports a better mobility future.
