The National Association of Road Transport Museums (NARTM) was formed over 30 years ago as an informal organisation with the primary role being to allow NARTM members to share ideas.

Membership is available to museums and societies. Two meetings are held a year at members locations. Members also receive a quarterly magazine "Newslink"

Membership is open to organisations or individuals having collections of passenger carrying vehicles (e.g. buses and coaches), goods vehicles and other large vehicles constructed for use on the road and who make, or propose to make, their collections accessible to the public either by display at a specified location (e.g. a museum) or by attending events open to the public.
