Cardno provides a suite of services in transit planning and design through its specialist traffic and transportation planning and infrastructure design teams. 

Transit represents a significant fundamental for the sustainable planning of communities and is a core consideration in all transportation and land use related studies undertaken by Cardno.

Our team has expertise in the integration of transit with land use planning from the early inception stages of greenfield master plans to brownfield implementation in developed catchments.  Modes of transit considered include bus, light rail and heavy rail using dedicated and shared corridor environments.  Elements of the design include route identification and mode evaluation, prioritisation and optimization methods combined with the detailed design of stop and interchange facilities.
The services provided in transit incorporate:
  • Route planning and evaluation
  • Patronage demand forecasting
  • Public transportation level of service assessment
  • Land use / public transit interface design
  • Public transit prioritization modeling and simulation
  • Public transit stop and interchange design
  • Pedestrian connectivity and CPTED auditing
  • Public transit construction sequencing and traffic management.
