Why Join LRTA

If you wish to see improved public transport in our cities then you should join the LRTA — the more members the more effective we can be in campaigning for the introduction of trams and light rail.

Members receive T&UT as part of their subscription, at a discount on the cover price. There is now a choice of postal or online versions of the magazine. Postal subscribers can also access the online version.

Membership includes access to the LRTA e–Group; a IO group. You can join online at the LRTA shop by clicking the Discussion Group item on the join/renewals page. Alternatively to join please e–mail groups@lrta.org; include your full name, membership number and post/zip code to ease the task of checking membership.


Member’s Days are held from time to time to offer Members to opportunity for a Presentation and Visit to recent developments in Light Rail and trams.

The latest Members Day was on the Tyne And Wear Metro on 12 July 2021 in Newcastle/Gateshead. Go to the Members’ Days page for details .

Members also have access to a Members Area which enables members to read the magazine on-line plus a selection of internal documents not available to the general public including a special guide to campaigning. When logged in a members discount is availble on books and DVDs. To access go to the LRTA shop and create/log in to your account. Email OLM@lrta.org if Members Area not visible.
