James Reynolds on Researching Transit Podcast Episode
Our very own James Reynolds, Senior Traffic Engineer and Road Safety Auditor at our Victorian office, has recently been on a Researching Transit podcast episode to discuss his PhD research on legitimacy and transit priority implementation. James is currently in the process of completing his thesis, having been studying at Monash University as part of the Sustainable and Effective Public Transport Graduate Research Industry Partnership program at the Public Transport Research Group. His project relates to the implementation of bus lanes, transit signal priority and other measures to improve on-road public transport service transit times through busy urban environments.
