Institute for Transport Studies (ITS)

ITS research and innovation reflects the growing demand for more advanced and more effective transport systems, arising from rapid societal, economic and environmental changes.

Many stakeholders benefit from our research. We provide scientific methodology and theory to solve real problems in transport planning for international organisations; consultancy companies; construction companies; government departments; agencies and regulators; politicians and decision-makers.

Our work impacts on all members of the public, at home and internationally, through our research and research-led teaching. This is provided by an academic team skilled in:

  • Data management
  • Design/Engineering

  • Economics
  • Environment
  • Freight/Logistics
  • Intelligent Transport Systems
  • Policy
  • Modelling
  • Technology solutions
  • Traffic management
