Research and best practice guidelines on the role of urban design in new transport systems

Burns + Nice were commissioned to research and prepare a best practice guide on the role of urban design when introducing new high quality public transport systems into existing urban environments.

A set of urban design principles and best practice guidelines were formulated to assist transport authorities and local government when planning and designing high quality transport infrastructure. The study evaluated twenty six case studies including rail, tram and bus operated systems in Europe and North America.
