Collective transport

Collective transport

Attractive collective transport uses resources more efficiently

When we split up a transport mode in time or space, then we get collective transport. Collective transport is part of the sharing economy and contributes to a more efficient use of both vehicles and space. Collective transport is a core element in the move towards a more sustainable society.

Attractive public transport is the backbone of the collective transport system, from rural public transport to city buses, and trams to high speed trains. Beyond this are a range of other, flexible, shared transport services that add to the more traditional public transport, e.g. car sharing or Mobility as a Service (MaaS).

More and more people see collective transport as a way to achieve more sustainable societies and attractive cities in the modern world. To achieve this, actions are needed both at the strategic and detailed planning levels. Our expertise and portfolio spans a broad range from strategy development to detailed network design and design of vehicles and bus stops.
