The Society is delighted to announce that with effect from 2016, there will be three levels of membership, which will include two types of Organisational Members.  Details are as follows:

1.     Individual Member

All academics, experts and interested individuals are welcome to take part in Society activities, and to do so, are invited to apply to become an individual member.


A Country or Area Representative (CAR) has been appointed for each area and country.  He or she works as a liaison with the WCTR Society, and is here to help you to become a member and to obtain all the information needed on membership benefits. You can find your representative on each region’s webpage (on the right).
Membership is generally for a three-year period and runs from one World Conference on Transport Research to the following Conference. Everyone who registers to attend a WCTR conference will automatically become a member of the Society.  However, if you are unable to attend a conference but would like to become a member, (or wish to renew your membership), please visit our Individual Membership page for further instructions

Current members are invited to update their personal details as input to the on-line Directory. Members can also keep their information updated by clicking on their User Profile, making the necessary changes and clicking ‘save’ at the bottom of the page.

2.   Organisational Membership

Over the years the Institutional (Corporations, Research Institutions and Universities) association with WCTRS has been largely limited to voluntary attendance and sponsorships at the World Conference every three years. Considering the involvement of a large number of Institutions in every aspect of transport and also their role in tackling the issues around climate change and atmospheric pollution, WCTRS would stand to gain if there was a closer interaction with institutions associated with transportation. It is with this thought in mind that WCTRS has introduced two types of Organisational Membership:

Research Organisational Members (ROMs) and Supporting Organisational Members (SOMs).
