The Metropolitan Transport Forum (MTF) is an advocacy group comprising members from Melbourne metropolitan local government, associate members representing transport companies, and participants from the State Government and environment groups.

The MTF endeavours to promote effective, efficient and equitable transport in metropolitan Melbourne by providing a forum for debate, research and policy development, and by disseminating information to improve transport choices.

The topic for August is Car Share.  Kate Trumbull, Car Next Door, and Malcolm Noyle, Car2Go, will give presentations, and a council perspective provided by City of Moreland. See agenda.
