Demand management

With travel demand continuously on the increase our urban transport consultants have been proactively creating practical and imaginative solutions to help clients manage multiple transport options and improve journeys.

Demand management can include ‘stick’ mechanisms to deter travel, either by pricing or through physical measures – for example, limiting road space and parking provision – or ‘carrot’ mechanisms which encourage potential travellers to alter their behaviour through what we call the 4 Rs. These are:

  • Reduce – the need to travel
  • Remode – use public transport, walking or cycling
  • Reroute – to avoid congested areas
  • Retime – to avoid the peak hours

Proven experience

Our experts supported Transport for London in the implementation of its Congestion Charge and have worked on road pricing studies for many other cities. We regularly advise authorities and investors on toll road design and management.

We also advise on softer methods of demand management such as travel mobility management and local sustainable transport fund programmes.
