PBA has a proven track record in providing innovative approaches in transport strategy, policy and research-based projects across the UK. Transport strategy typically sits above specific projects and initiatives, providing the overall framework and the rationale for specific actions.
PBA has developed local transport plans and local transport strategies for local authorities across the UK and undertaken policy and strategy work for local and central government and government agencies.
Policy and strategy is developed on an evidence-based and objective-led basis, where the outcomes sought are defined in terms of a meaningful set of targets, and the whole process should be allied to robust monitoring and evaluation regimes. Public and stakeholder consultation is a key element of this and many strategies are developed in association with detailed delivery, implementation or investment plans.
The development of strategies and policy are frequently based on primary research programmes, and PBA has extensive experience in designing and undertaking these programmes.
