Industry Affliliations and memberships 

The International Association of Public Transport is a non-profit advocacy organization for public transport authorities and operators, policy decision-makers, scientific institutes and the public transport supply and service industry. 
The Railway Industry Association (RIA) is the voice of the UK rail supply community. We help to grow a sustainable, high-performing, railway supply industry, and to export UK rail expertise and products. 
 
RIA has 360+ companies in membership in a sector that contributes £43 billion in economic growth and £14 billion in tax revenue each year, as well as employing 710,000 people. It is also a vital industry for the UK’s economic recovery, supporting green investment and jobs in towns and communities across the UK; for every £1 spent in rail, £2.50 is generated in the wider economy. 
 
RIA’s membership is active across the whole of railway supply, covering a diverse range of products and services and including both multi-national companies and SMEs (60% by number). 
Rail Forum is a national industry body for railway with strong regional connections, operating from our base in the Midlands. Our membership is diverse and growing, with over 350 members across the UK and across the breadth of the sector. 
UK Tram is the authoritative voice of the light rail sector in the UK and Ireland. We represent operators, promoters, manufacturers, contractors and consultants involved not only in tramways and metros but also the expanding ultra and very light rail and personal rapid transit sectors. 
The LRTA is a not–for–profit UK based organisation and has members throughout the world. Free of any trade or political affiliation; it is the world’s leading organisation concerned with the achievement of better public transport through light rail, tramway and metro systems in towns and cities world–wide. 
Campaign for Better Transport is the national charity working across England and Wales to make transport better, greener and fairer. Our vision is for all communities to have high quality, sustainable transport that meets their needs, improves quality of life and helps protect the environment.
