Transport is a major challenge for cities and regions worldwide. Providing high quality public transport has long been seen as a pro-active means of addressing the negative economic, environmental, social and urban consequences of traffic congestion. However, Public Transport service planners and operators face a range of practical financial, operational and social challenges in developing services. Financial pressures in particular demonstrate a need for increased productivity in achieving improved outcomes.
The Smart Public Transport Lab at Delft University of Technology is offering a week-long course in public transport planning in Delft since April 2016. This course is provided in association with the Institute of Transport Studies, Monash University and the Transportation Research Institute, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. Similar courses have been run before in Australia and New Zealand.
The objectives of the course is to compare between traditional operations and service planning, including scheduling procedures, and new approaches, and to deal with and find solutions to persistent and realistic public transport problems. This course covers public transport planning topics identified as priorities for learning by participants in previous courses.
