"For me, there are two main qualities you need to become a Transport Planner. Firstly, you have to be able to see past problems to find real solutions. Secondly, you need to be a great communicator. In other words, if your traffic induced road rage doesn’t consist of polite negotiations and suggestions for improvement (e.g. an extra lane on a busy road), you probably won’t get much done in this job. My day-to-day is varied, and mainly involves looking at travel data and pinpointing areas that need work. Then, I run simulations, put together plans, and write reports in order to assess the feasibility of ideas. Most importantly though, I always need to ensure that the changes in transport systems work well for both the environment and the public."
