To create knowledgeable, innovative & impactful mobility solutions for our community through the intellect, experience & integrity of our people.
An Integrated Mobility Future which is safe, sustainable and a driver of economic well-being.
ARRB is the National Transport Research Organisation and exists to be the trusted partner for Government and
Industry alike on the journey to an integrated, mobility enabled future.
ARRB has delivered 60 years of continuous service to the road and transport sectors of Australia and New Zealand. We
are the source of independent, reliable and robust guidance on the delivery of next generation infrastructure to serve the
mobility needs of our community.
ARRB has connections across UK, Europe, USA, Asia and China giving access to vast amounts of new knowledge.
Using this with our own new knowledge and established expertise, we will forge the mobility future that all
Australians and New Zealanders desire.
As we transition to a mobility-based society, the nature of the supporting transport infrastructure must change together with the attitudes to using this resource. ARRB has a clear role of partnering with its shareholders at Local, State and Federal Government levels to provide timely, accurate and impactful means of achieving their objectives. We also give trusted and rigorous advice on future issues impacting transport systems and users.
ARRB has teams of people across six Strategic Work Groups (SWG’s) that enable smart decision making and collaborative problem solving.
These groups work in an integrated, multi-disciplinary way that reflects the complexity of the world we live in and of its
ARRB also has a world-leading materials laboratory, a fleet of unique infrastructure measurement vehicles - such as
the Intelligent Pavement Assessment Vehicle iPAVe - and the National Transport Performance Centre, that provides access to, and visualisation of, ARRB’s data lake of transport information. Our National Centre for Road and Transport Certification (ARRB Certification) will ensure greater uptake of innovations into mobility systems.
Infrastructure Sustainability and Resilience
Every Australian, every day, is reliant on the transport system. Community demands on the system are changing rapidly and constantly. The system’s sustainability and resilience has never been more important to ensure its long-term viability and level of service offering. Moving to integrated mobility solutions will bring constant opportunities for improvement.
Enabling the transport and mobility systems to function in a different way, with people at the centre, requires a new set of tools to solve these mobility challenges.
ARRB is a proactive partner for government and industry to develop solutions and a new tool kit for the future, including:
Safer Roads and Infrastructure
User-centric and safe mobility will be a lens through which all new infrastructure and the maintenance of current transport infrastructure will be assessed. A “safe system” approach will lead to the development of new and innovative ways of delivering smarter, better and more efficient use of precious resources that deliver better, safer outcomes for
User culture, behaviours and decision-making in a new transport and mobility system must be addressed. Using human factors, transport systems must be shaped around the users and their needs. A new partnership will emerge between smarter, safer and interactive infrastructure and the people who use it.
All ARRB staff within the established strategic work groups are working to assist the development of safer transport and mobility systems in Australia and New Zealand by:
