Transport Planning Technician Apprenticeship

What does a transport planner do?

Transport planning is really important because having a safe, efficient and cost effective transport system benefits everyone. Transport planners work on policies, projects and plans to improve all types of transport systems such as public bus routes, cycle paths, roads and rail. As well as improving existing transport systems, they also work on brand-new transport developments, collecting and analysing data to find out what kind of infrastructure will work best and using their expert knowledge of transport policy to advise their clients.
