From Rail Engineering to Transportation Planning
According to a UN report, 54 per cent of the world’s population live in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66 per cent by 2050. This means that cities all over the world need to reconsider their public transport services in order to meet future demand.
Rail and transit systems play a leading role in the future of modern transportation. They offer sustainable solutions that reduce carbon emissions, create greater mobility with increased energy efficiency and provide long-term economic benefits.
