Policy, strategy and regulation

Disruptive technology is causing major shifts in the way that transport is delivered in our cities and towns. The speed of change of new technologies, business models and the need for carbon reduction means that public policy, strategy and regulation is increasingly in need of review, modernisation and reform.

Through engagement, research and analysis we are experienced in developing comprehensive evidence bases to help inform policy, strategy and regulation. Understanding the impacts, both positive and negative of these changes, be it from decarbonisation to safety to economic growth, is crucial to help to develop and inform new policies, strategies and review regulation.

Our team has experience working on a wide range of disruptive transport technologies, which helps inform public sector responses. Our experience with both public and private sector clients provides a deep level of insight into the opportunities and pressures faced and helps to provide a balanced view to inform and develop policies, strategies and regulation. Our recent work includes a comprehensive review of the taxi and private hire sector in London, regulatory recommendations for adopting e-scooters, on-demand minibuses and autonomous vehicle services.

How we can help you

We work with local authorities, transport authorities, universities and industry bodies to help shape policies, strategies and regulation to respond to fast-changing business models and carbon reduction targets. We can also help businesses and business groups to shape policy and strategy to consider new opportunities and changes to existing services.
