Public and Passenger Transport

Providing you with a holistic view on how effective transport planning supports your overall community policy goals.

In terms of public transport, we cover the whole spectrum, from taxis and
community buses through to major rail and BRT investments. 


In addition to assisting in operational aspects, we help our clients see public
transport in the context of overall policy. This helps to provide a range of cost effective solutions to deliver goals, such as better rural access.

Our expertise includes:

  • Public transport studies (including market research and needs analysis)

  • Service and best value reviews of local authority transport

  • Network planning, development and service design

  • Concessionary travel schemes

  • Marketing of transport services

  • Accessibility audits

  • Transport for mobility impaired and travel training

  • Community transport and social enterprises

  • Taxi and private hire studies


Our experience

We have assisted in the development of an innovative cooperative software product called 'The Transport Order & Request' System (TORS). TORS automatically links transport demand with transport providers, which enables individuals to input their journey to receive lowest price fares.

Working on the Luton Dunstable Busway project, we carried out an independent review on the aspects of the system design, and how it applies to passengers comfort and ride quality.

Working internationally, we provided passenger demand and revenue  forecasts for the Nairobi BRT scheme whilst also assisting with the general specification of the system. We also provided pre-feasibility advice for a BRT scheme in Palembang in Indonesia.
