Course background

Challenge

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.

Association

The Public Transport Research Group at Monash University in association with the Smart Public Transport Lab at Delft University of Technology is offering a 4 day course in public transport planning. This course is provided in association with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. Similar courses have been run before in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and in Australia and New Zealand.

The objective of the course is to compare between traditional operations and service planning, including scheduling procedures, and new approaches, 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. They are designed to be relevant to all conventional and emerging public transport modes including bus, tram, rail and on-demand services.
