Welcome to SASTA and we are glad you are joining us in our goal of helping to deliver the New Zealand Government vision of a Safe Transport System.

Our aim is to promote national best practice in community activities that seek to improve safety and sustainability on our transport network.

Who are SASTA?

SASTA is an independent incorporated society managed by professionals working in, or contracted by, local government in Aotearoa New Zealand.

SASTA originated in 2007 out of the longstanding Road Safety Coordinators' Association.

We are currently funded through annual membership subscriptions.

What do we do?

SASTA is managed by a volunteer Executive representing all local government regions and provides the following services to members:

  • Representation and advocacy on key national working groups related to road safety and sustainable transport.
  • Relationship pathways to the New Zealand Transport Agency and the Ministry of Transport.
  • Regular national communication and information sharing via an email database and newsletter.
  • Professional development for members and via key annual conferences such as TRAFINZ.

The future of SASTA

SASTA has formed to meet the growing national demand for a safer and more sustainable transport network in our communities. Our current focus is to make professionals and national organisations aware of SASTA’s role, secure a sound operating base for the association, and provide networking and professional development opportunities for our members.

SASTA provides an excellent opportunity for professionals to have a national voice on safe and sustainable transport issues and to remain informed and connected as we build a better future together for our local communities.

Your membership and support is most welcome
