Sustainable Transport Solutions


DBA has undertaken the preparation of numerous studies involving the delivery of sustainable transport solutions to our clients. For many of these studies the outcome is the successful implementation of a Travel Plan for a given development or facility, including discussion with local public transport operators regarding service levels and routes.

Depending on client needs these plans may involve prior travel behavior monitoring. A sample list of DBA’s sustainable transport projects of particular note is shown below. This list excludes numerous GTP frameworks and initial plans produced at the planning stage.
