Public Transport

Better management of existing transport networks and providing more reliable bus and rail services feature heavily in the Government’s policy approach to managing demand and addressing the challenges of sustaining economic growth and reducing carbon emissions.

SMA is very much aware of the importance of enhancing travel choices and improving accessibility by public transport. Opportunities for providing interchanges (Park & Ride and Park & Change) and multi-modal facilities can make significant contributions towards managing travel demand and off-setting the impacts of future development (housing and development). SMA is currently advising Clients of Park & Ride proposals in Gloucestershire, Bedfordshire and Devon.

SMA can provide the following:

  • Appraisal of sites for modal interchange (bus based park and ride; transport hubs)
  • Assessment of demand/viability
  • Design of access and infrastructure for public transport interchanges
  • Analysis and development of traffic safety, sustainable transport and mixed use schemes
  • Accessibility assessments
  • Co-ordination of services and negotiations with local transport authorities, train operating companies and bus companies
