Welcome to ATPIO


The ATPIO was established in 2004 to serve as a forum where an international community of transportation professionals that share a common heritage could come together to address relevant and emerging issues and challenges in transportation, exchange information and ideas, engage in technology transfer activities, and mentor young professionals eager to join the field. Over the past several decades, transportation professionals of Indian origin have greatly increased in numbers and are engaging in cutting-edge research and practice in both developed and developing countries around the world. Transportation professionals of Indian origin are employed in leading academic institutions, research centers, government transport agencies, and private industry and consulting firms. Many more young professionals of Indian origin are entering the profession every day.

The ATPIO recognizes that there are many complex issues and challenges facing the profession. Growing travel demand and congestion, rising accident rates, energy and environmental sustainability, rapid urbanization, global warming, and globalization of economies are issues that must be addressed to ensure safe and efficient access to goods and services.

The ATPIO organizes workshops, seminars, and conferences where professionals can share information and identify transport solutions that work in a variety of geographical, cultural, and societal contexts. The ATPIO is committed to professional capacity-building and undertakes a range of mentorship activities to help junior and senior professionals alike further develop the skills and knowledge to be successful.
