SYSTRA is a specialist in urban transport planning and design. We recognise the vital role that urban mobility plays in creating liveable and sustainable places, and we work to deliver fully integrated transport schemes that address complex urban priorities.

Complex challenges for urban transport planners

Urban mobility presents huge challenges for local authorities, planners and developers. The way people and goods move around towns and cities affects the liveability and sustainability of urban areas, and the health and life chances of everyone who lives or works there.

Urban mobility must address multiple agendas, from sustainability and liveability to social, political and economic priorities. There is a need to shift towards more sustainable and active modes of transport to meet carbon-reduction and air-quality objectives, while integrating existing transport networks, public transport, parking and mobility hubs.

Getting urban mobility right requires not only a wide range of technical skills but also engagement, communication and political skills. SYSTRA has a deep understanding of all mobility solutions for cities, from the hyper centre to the outskirts. Our specialists draw on 60 years of experience in urban transport modes to support all types of urban mobility project.

SYSTRA urban mobility specialists understand how to design transport plans for towns and cities that ensure transport investments contribute positively to the broader experience and quality of urban life.

Integrated approach to urban transport delivery

SYSTRA is uniquely placed to help create urban transport networks that meet the needs of multiple stakeholders and objectives. We understand not only the planning and design requirements of all modes of transport, but also how to integrate them, including through the use of technology.

Transport stakeholder engagement

We understand that places and decisions about transport are complicated and require more than technical skills to deliver. Our in-house resources mean we can include significant elements of engagement within our urban mobility projects, whether through co-production or research-based approaches.

Inclusive and sustainable towns and cities

We recognise the increasing importance of inclusion and the need to plan and design urban transport systems for a wide variety of people. Our approach is to understand the ‘place’ as well as all the issues around ‘movement’ and to think imaginatively about how the two can work together. We help to deliver urban transport schemes that meet specific criteria, such as 20-minute neighbourhoods, 15-minute cities and walkable neighbourhoods.

Expertise in planning, design and placemaking

Ultimately, our approach to urban mobility is multifaceted. It brings together broad technical transport planning and design skills, with placemaking and well-honed engagement and communication skills, sitting alongside a mature understanding of the political nature of transport decision-making in UK towns and cities.
