Who We Are

Welcome to SASTA. We are glad you are joining us to help deliver the New Zealand Government's vision of a Safe Transport System. We aim to promote international best practices in community activities that seek to improve the safety and sustainability of our transport network. 

Who is SASTA?

SASTA is an independent incorporated society managed by professionals working in or contracted by the local government in Aotearoa, New Zealand. SASTA originated in 2007 out of the longstanding Road Safety Coordinators' Association. Our funding comes from annual membership subscriptions.

What do we do?

A group of volunteers representing local government regions manages SASTA as an Executive team and provides the following services to our members:

  • Representation and advocacy on key national working groups related to road safety and sustainable transport, including the Community Road Safety Fund, Trafinz Executive, NZ Transport Agency Education and Advertising Stakeholder meetings, MSD Accessibility workshops, Road Safety strategy working groups. 
  • Relationship pathways to the Waka Kotahi/New Zealand Transport Agency, the Ministry of Transport and minister of Police.
  • Regular national communication and information sharing.
  • Professional development for members.

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 for our local communities.
