Come and discuss public transport issues, and how you can help get them fixed, with the PTUA committee and with other members.
Next event: Annual General Meeting
Where: 247 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
When: Thursday 18th October 2018, 6:30pm
This year’s Annual General Meeting will feature an update from Sustainable Cities campaigner Rachel Lynskey, and we will present the Paul Mees Award to this year’s winners, who over many years have helped to advance the debate on transport issues around our state. We think they are particularly deserving and we hope you’ll join us for the presentation, and to hear them impart a few words of wisdom to our membership.
The committee nomination form is available here.
