Welcome to the Safe and Sustainable Transport Association (SASTA)

SASTA is an independent Incorporated Society managed by professionals working in local government to promote national good practice in community focused activities that seek to improve safety and sustainability on our transport network.

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.

SASTA originated in 2007 out of the long-standing Road Safety Coordinators Association. We are currently funded through annual membership subscriptions and are not affiliated with a specific organisation.
