Transit Planning

IBI Group’s transit planning practice addresses all phases of development — from concept evaluation to detailed route planning, implementation engineering and architectural design.

Moving our people

All over the world, people’s livelihood depends on strong, reliable, daily transit systems that get them where they need to go. They’re a crucial link to the future of Smart Cities, and our transit planning practice lays the foundation for growth in this critical area of infrastructure.

Our team comprises planners, analysts, managers, engineers, and architects. Together, they’ve successfully carried out in-depth studies of various public transit modes including bus, light rail transit (LRT), bus rapid transit (BRT), all forms of advanced passenger transport, metros, and commuter rail.

We pride ourselves on a close working relationship with each of our clients — always with a focus on improving and protecting the environment while anticipating future growth.
