Growing our global presence...

With a new ANZ Division

As the only global association of our kind, there’s a responsibility ‘to go the distance’ to make sure that UITP is truly international…

And when it comes to our activities in Australia and New Zealand, we have a long history to our name.

Over the years, our presence in the ANZ region has grown at an impressive rate, leading to a new change in the way we represent our members in the two countries.

Last year, UITP ended the ongoing collaboration with the local association in Australia and New Zealand that offered its services to members in ANZ under our logo. With that change, a decision was made to establish a new ANZ Division: one fit for the future…and now, that future has arrived.

UITP is delighted to announce the official launch of all activities ‘Down Under’ with the new UITP Australia and New Zealand Division.

To show the serious commitment UITP is making to our membership and representation in the region, we’re pleased to announce Rob Mayo as Head of UITP ANZ Office.

Meet Rob Mayo...

Leading our UITP Office in ANZ

Rob has over 20 years experience in marketing, sales, customer service and product / service development throughout ANZ and the wider Asia Pacific region. He specialises in public transport passenger experience design, transit-oriented development and service excellence and already has a long-standing relationship with UITP and our membership.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, and with our new Division Chair to be based in Sydney, Australia, UITP ANZ will now better reach all corners of this important region.

Rob will be a visible presence to all of our ANZ members and will work closely with our other global Head Of Regions around the world.

UITP membership in the region is growing at a rapid speed after UITP started to provide services directly to our members and alongside the unveiling of Rob Mayo as Head of ANZ Office, we are solidifying our commitment to Australia and New Zealand. 

By creating a brand-new division in Australia and New Zealand, UITP is showing how committed we are to this important region. Not only will we be able to listen closely to the needs of our members in ANZ right at the local level, we will be able to offer them a close connection to global expertise, international events, networking, policy development and thought leadership across the globe. With incredibly impressive public transport running through the heart of their cities, our members in Australia and New Zealand will find collaboration, cooperation and partnership at the core of their UITP membership.

It’s an honour to become the new Head of UITP ANZ, working for a global association whose incredible value to the public transport sector I have seen up close for some years now. My priority is for our members to receive what they cannot get from elsewhere: real-world, global public transport expertise and experience – through international collaboration and knowledge transfer via UITP’s vast network of members.

More to come...

From our members in ANZ!

With more than 50 members already part of UITP Australia and New Zealand, including leading players such as Transport for New South Wales, John Holland Group and Brisbane City Council, UITP’s long-standing ability to bring together networks, operators, authorities and decision makers continues with esteem…

The incredible benefits of UITP membership only become available to those who become members of our association.

With its international reach, UITP is aware of the innovative implementation among our members, setting us apart from other bodies by providing a real opportunity for public transport in the region to gain access to global expertise and insight. 

With a newly established Australia and New Zealand Division, UITP has become even stronger.

Stay tuned for more on upcoming membership events, Academy activities, and new developments from UITP ANZ!
