Transport is a major challenge for cities and regions worldwide. Providing high quality public transport has long been seen as a pro-active means of addressing the negative economic, environmental, social and urban consequences of traffic congestion. However, public transport service planners and operators face a range of practical financial, operational and social challenges in developing services. Financial pressures in particular demonstrate a need for increased productivity in achieving improved outcomes. At the same time, the public transport sector is facing great opportunities and challenges in the age of urbanization, big data, the shared economy and environmental concerns.
