Announcing free student memberships

General News,
Equipping students to succeed in their future careers

Beginning today, the Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) is launching a free student membership program. This initiative aims to expand student access to our community of over 1,400 professionals in the urban planning, sustainability, engineering, mobility, and transportation fields. As a member of the association, students will learn more about these career paths and develop a strong network in these industries.

They will also gain access to the many benefits of ACT's membership, including:

  • Professional development
  • Networking opportunities
  • Industry events
  • Webinars
  • Membership in a regional chapter
  • Ability to join themed councils
  • Access to a members-only online discussion platform

“Through this exciting new initiative, students will have greater access to future internships, jobs, and a thriving career,” stated David Straus, ACT’s Executive Director.  “We look forward to welcoming them to the association and supporting their professional growth”

To be eligible, students must be enrolled full-time (according to their program) at an accredited higher education institution. Those unsure if they qualify are encouraged to contact ACT at
