All entities, both private and public, with an interest in rail and/or the broader transport sector can become a Participant of ACRI. Participants can join ACRI as part of Agreed Work Programs, individually for commissioned work, or both. All work undertaken by ACRI is targeted to meet the needs of individual Participants whether as part of Agreed Work Programs or commissioned research. Participants determine the type of research that is undertaken.

ACRI does not have a membership fee. Contributions are directed to agreed work programs determined by the Participant. There is a small administration fee attached to all projects to support the tightly managed corporate office. An appropriate project management fee is also applied to all projects.

In addition, ACRI is offering Associate Membership to companies that contract with, manufacture for, or supply to the rail industry or broader transport sector. Contractors, manufacturers and suppliers who wish to become full Participants of ACRI are still welcome to join at that level.
