Policy work

The Centre for Transport Studies (CfTS) actively participates in local, national and international transport and mobility policy work. Amongst others, we contribute to policy design and development, prepare policy documentation and guidelines, and contribute to and organise platforms to debate policy and related implementation activities. Our people also engage in commissioned policy work in the transport field in their capacities as topic experts. 

Our policy work includes a variety of projects.

International projects

  • A global policy review of women’s safety on public transport for the FIA Foundation
  • A guide for investing in green transport energy and efficiency for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
  • Input to a multi-country urban mobility and accessibility policy development programme, for the Africa Transport Policy Programme (SSATP)
  • Input to a multi-stakeholder dialogue on public transport reform in Maputo hosted by the Mozambican Ministry of Transport & Communication and the Maputo and Matola Municipalities

National projects

  • Policy workshops on paratransit reform in partnership with the South African National Treasury and the National Department of Transport, supported by the World Bank
  • A practice manual for green city development for the South African National Department of Environmental Affairs
