New in our public transport course, learn and experience unique examples of public transport planning and operations.
The course includes a guided study visit excursion to gain first-hand experience with state-of-the-art public transport planning and operations. We will visit the new Rotterdam Central Station, an intermodal hub including high-speed international, national and regional train services, metro, tram, bus and a garage for 5,000 bikes. We will get there riding the RandstadRail, a combined metro and light rail line connecting The Hague and Rotterdam, and fostering the emergence of a joint metropolitan area.
Learning by doing: join us in playing a new service design game on our public transport course
The course includes an exciting interactive service design game where you will gain first-hand experience with making service design decisions and assessing their consequences. You will be asked to look into the specifics of public transport and choose a set of measures for improving the public transport network in The Hague. You will experience the trade-off between different measures and learn how to make service decisions with limited resources
