Public Road Transport


For most people, the bus is the "gateway" to the public transit system, and for many it is the only transportation option available.


From the environmental point of view, public transport is part of the sustainable mobility solutions and strategies to consider. From the social point of view, it is also an instrument for the promotion of inclusion.


The technological evolution of buses and communication systems offers the possibility of integration with other mobility systems and better communication of the offer to users.


Public road transport is thus an essential part of the global transport system.

why you should choose tis

Our genesis is associated with the expansion process of Portuguese public transport heavy networks and the need to develop planning and demand studies that support the decision process in a sustained way. Since then, the use of modeling software (currently the PTV Visum is used) has enabled the development of multimodal transport models, in which the current and future operating conditions are reproduced of transport systems.


TIS is also at the forefront of the development of flexible transport networks (on request), as well as in the planning and rationalization of school transport networks.


We have also collaborated with several Transportation Authorities in supporting the process of implementation of the Legal Regime of Passenger Transport Service, developing Operational Transport Plans for several Intermunicipal Communities and municipalities. TIS has also participated in several European research and consultancy projects in the planning and management of public road transport networks.


Finally, we believe that the client / user has a central role in the transport system and, as such, we offer competences in the area of market studies, namely, customer satisfaction assessment and definition of action plans to improve the experience of the use.
