Operations & service delivery

Delivery of operations is changing rapidly with the use of digital inputs allowing the development of forecasting tools and rapid understanding of different operating models. We can use these approaches to diagnose and support existing operations or plan future operating scenarios, for example for rail franchise bids or wider bus and tram service developments and enhancements.

Improving operations and delivery of services to customers is at the forefront for all transport operators. Our team can thoroughly assess complex operating models and analyse what is working and where improvements can be made. The application of digital data and operational modelling tools allow us to assess multiple scenarios maximising the benefit to customers and potentially reducing operating costs.

We can bring a wide understanding of worldwide markets and approaches, deploying learning across modes and across continents. Our approach brings together demand and revenue forecasting, with cost modelling and option development allowing us to diagnose, understand and forecast the impact of operational changes at the strategic and detailed levels of your business.
