Urban mobility & Public transport
The challenge of urbanisation in the Netherlands is enormous. A lot of construction will be taking place in the coming years. To ensure that the urban areas remain habitable and accessible, coherent choices must be made in the areas of housing, infrastructure, sustainable mobility and facilities. Panteia assists clients with urban mobility issues and supports them in gathering the right information and converting this information into innovative and creative mobility solutions. We bring together knowledge about sustainable mobility and sustainable goods transport in the urban environment.
The Dutch government’s ‘Public Transport in 2040’ outlines a vision in which trains run between major cities with fewer stops, space is created for public transport in the Randstad conurbation, and sparsely populated areas are opened up by means of new concepts and facilities, such as shared cars and e-bikes. Experimentation is important here. Panteia contributes to solutions that keep public transport accessible and affordable.
Support with distribution issues and financing
In order to optimise public transport, more and more parties, such as provinces, urban regions, municipalities and public transport providers, must work together. Especially the reduction of the supply at the ‘bottom end’ of the public transport market (scrapping and extending lines, fewer services in the evenings and weekends) raises questions about cooperation and distribution. Panteia supports clients with advice on the distribution of costs and revenues and the financing of mobility. We also advise governments on an international scale on institutional structures and types of procurement.
From Big Data to unique information
Based on our knowledge and experience in the field of mobility and our experience in processing large amounts of data, Panteia is able to translate data into usable information that can be employed to improve public transport and mobility. For example, we have a leading role in the analysis of public transport chip card data.
A few other themes:
- The development of mobility policy and public transport policy.
- The development of pricing policy and other issues related to pricing in, for example, public transport, special transport services and taxi transport.
- Policy development for special transport services, combining our knowledge and experience of transport and of care and welfare.
