For most people, buses consist of the "gateway" to the public transit system, being the only transport option available for many.
From an environmental point of view, public transport is part of the array of sustainable mobility solutions and strategies to consider. From a social point of view, it is also an instrument for promoting social inclusion.
The technological evolution of buses and communication systems offer the possibility of integration with other mobility systems and better communication of the offers available to users.
Thus, Public road transport is an essential part of the global transport system.
Our genesis is associated with the expansion process of the heavy Portuguese public transport networks and the need to develop planning and demand studies that are able to support the decision process in a sustained manner. Since then, the use of a modelling software (PTV Visum is currently used) has enabled the development of multimodal transport models, in which the current and future operating conditions of transport systems are reproduced.
TIS is also at the forefront of the development of flexible transport networks (on request), as well as in the planning and rationalisation of school transport networks.
We have also collaborated with several Transportation Authorities in supporting the process of implementation of the Legal Regime of Passenger Transport Services, developing Operational Transport Plans for several Intermunicipal Communities and municipalities. TIS has also participated in several European research and consultancy projects in the planning and management of public road transport networks.
We believe that the client / user has a central role in the transport system and, as such, we offer skills in the domain of market studies, namely customer satisfaction assessment and the definition of action plans to improve the user’s experience.
