Rail passenger transport plays a major role in urban, suburban and medium-long distance connections, shouldering the role of a structuring and high-capacity mode. Fostering its integration in the travel chain while creating conditions to effectively fulfill its structural function steps in as the main challenge.
Rail freight share of transport has been growing, though being small relative to other modes of transport (mainly low in Portugal, representing less than 10% whichever the indicator used for this comparison). However, its gradual increase is expected, driven by the need to shift to less environmentally and energetically harmful modes of transport which raises important questions on integration (gauge, electrification, control systems, etc.), regulation and management to ensure a flow of processes capable of ‘preserving high levels of economic and service efficiency.
The vast experience and diversity of projects in this area guarantee a rigorous and up-to-date approach in the projects we are involved.
Passenger, freight and mixed rail systems in urban (subway and light rail), suburban, regional, interregional and international (conventional and high-speed systems) environment are an integral part of our curriculum, which allows us to provide a vast spectrum of skills related to railway mode of transport and a systemic view of the issues.
