Centre for Transport Studies (CTS)

CTS is a world leading multi-disciplinary transport centre that combines transport and city policy, strategy, development and implementation.

About

The CTS Vision is to improve mobility, safety and quality of life for all. CTS research embraces this through a programme of research across the transport and city domains, and covers all aspects of transport and mobility, including multiscale modelling and simulation, design and implementation of policies, infrastructure and systems. CTS carries out research and teaching in governance; city mobilities; economics; infrastructure investment; networks; operations; accessibility and transport safety. CTS hosts the UCL PEARL (People-Environment-Activity Research Laboratory) of the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure & Cities (UKCRIC). CTS works extensively with governments and industry all over the world.

CTS engages with researchers across UCL and more widely through its Transport@UCL platform.

Professor Nick Tyler is the current Director of CTS.
