Mobility studies

Mobility studies


Public Transport Authorities can benefit from Transamo’s expertise right from the earliest stages of their mobility projects. Mobility studies help to substantiate, define and design their projects.

Transamo also improves the efficiency and quality of service of existing transport networks by conducting network restructuring studies, increasing commercial speed, etc.

Given the varied nature of mobility projects, their contexts and issues, Transamo has built up an experienced multidisciplinary team that has the flexibility to adapt to client expectations.

Made up of engineers, architects, urban planners, geographers and economists, and with a range of expert know-how in fields as varied as data analysis, modelling, urban integration and operations, Transamo’s Mobility Studies unit is tasked with conducting all the preliminary aspects of mobility projects, including a financial, socio-economic and environmental analysis.
