Our strategy and planning practice brings our knowledge of the rail domain to broader organisational consultancy and the long-term development of transport networks.
We support clients ranging from governments and industry regulators to operators and product manufacturers, supporting them through every stage of the project life cycle, from initial scoping to implementation and evaluation.
Whether preparing an economic impact assessment for an entirely new railway or defining organisation-wide cyber security responses, we help senior decision makers clarify their objectives and present their plans to technical and non-technical audiences with a transparency that builds trust with stakeholders.
As a member of the Ricardo group, the insight and expertise we offer to our clients goes beyond traditional rail thinking. For example, we can call upon Ricardo engineers and analysts with experience of government environmental policy or of high-efficiency, low-emission technologies from the world of motorsport.
