A smooth, seamless public transport system that is both accessible and sustainable is crucial for enhancing the liveability of any city.

In today’s modern world, it is essential that all modes of public transport networks including train, light rail, tram, metro, subway, underground and bus, integrate seamlessly and efficiently to make passengers’ journeys easier. Across many cities, accessibility to an efficient public transport network has proven to drive economic growth, reduce pollution and enhance our quality of life.

Royal HaskoningDHV’s public transport team brings in-depth expertise to develop a vision of integrated public transport policy and practice where all modes of transport complement and connect with one another.

Our track record and breadth of expertise in all areas of transport enable us to have the insight and foresight to help create and achieve this vision. We can deliver phased approaches to help with operational solutions of today while working towards the larger goals to achieve the vision of an efficient and digital transport network of tomorrow.

Integrated design: multi-modal transport networks

The efficient flow of passengers and vehicles are central to our public transport systems approach, be it inner-city connections or connections between a city and its urbanised and rural areas.

At Royal HaskoningDHV, the planning and design of public transport networks is complemented by our team of human behaviour experts to ensure that transport planning and design is efficient and effective. This unique combination of skills works to maximise the capacity in public transport networks resulting in a smooth traffic flow between transport modes and a cost-effective plan that benefits the community.

Our multi-modal vision and integrated approach allows us to create optimized and sustainable solutions in line with policy and economic development.

Public and private– a collaborative approach

Public transport is constantly developing and its impact on the territory around it means that collaboration between public and private parties is critical to ensure a successful solution.

Our integrated expertise in fields such as spatial development, infrastructure, intersections, sustainability, cycling policy and parking policy brings together private interests and public needs. We draw on our broad international experience to advise on transport related stakeholder management, ensuring that plans are economically feasible, and widely accepted across the local, regional and national levels.

Above all, our work in this field begins in the crucial planning phase which takes into account long term developments with short term actions, offering solutions that can be implemented incrementally.

Network analysis to optimise efficiency

With more people migrating to the cities, our public transport networks have become busier and more complex.

Our team carries out a thorough network analysis to optimize the capacity so as to enable a smooth and efficient flow of people and vehicles across the entire transport network. From designing short term tactical solutions to implementing long term strategic options, our teams can develop the phased approach to optimize your network capacity both today, and tomorrow.
