Welcome to Transport Initiatives!

Transport Initiatives LLP is an independent transport planning consultancy, formed in 2005. Our four members all have strong in-depth knowledge of sustainable transport in general and cycling in particular.

We specialise in innovative ways of developing and promoting sustainable transport options, covering every step from initial strategies and audits to managing implementation and monitoring outcomes. Our clients include local authorities, national parks, development bodies, Government Departments, train operators and anyone else requiring practical and achievable sustainable transport solutions.

The Transport Initiatives team mainly developed their skills working in or for local authorities. They contributed to the work of Cycling England between 2005 and 2010. Our team are internationally recognised as being experts in their field.

Latest News: Against the flow in Cambridge

Transport Initiatives has been commissioned by Cambridge City Council to investigate the safety of contra-flow cycling on one way roads in the city. We'll be using our innovative mobile camera methods to study cyclists' interactions with motor vehicles, other cyclists and pedestrians on roads with no marked contra-flow lane. Previous work by TI suggests that cycling against the flow of general traffic shouldn't be a problem but it is nice to be given the chance to measure it properly. We'll also be seeking the experiences of local cyclists.


We're working on this: TI reducing severance in Cambridgeshire

 The A14 is being rebuilt on a new line between Cambridge and the A1 cutting across several local routes. Some mitigation measures have been included in the scheme but they don't tie into local needs very well. Transport Initiatives are investigating routes south of St Ives and taking the chance to tie local communities into the Cambridge-St Ives Busway at the same time. Work involves measuring speeds and flows of traffic, minutely measuring pinch points and inspecting drains and ditches for crossing points. With the recent dry weather and the Blackthorn in bloom the job has made for some very pleasant site visits. We even got some birdwatching in; or were we just checking the footpaths?
