Traffic and Parking


Over the past decades, the approach to planning and management of urban traffic and parking has been to provide more capacity to meet the steady growth in demand for car-based transport. This approach, while solving confined problems, also promoted the further use of the automobile, thus creating new traffic problems in a never-ending loop of capacity enhancement.


Currently, urban mobility strategies are based on fine-tuning individual transport to the restrictions resulting from the requalification of the public space and the promotion of a greater (and better) fit of cars with other modes of transport, being them transport public or walking and cycling.


In this new approach, traffic engineering and parking management become even more important parts in defining the solutions that best fit the established objectives.

TIS has been involved in some of the most representative projects of this paradigm shift at the national level, supporting decision-makers in establishing the guidelines for interventions and defining the best solutions.


To ensure that the proposed solutions achieve the established objectives for each case, TIS uses the most up-to-date and innovative tools in the evaluation of its performance, namely the Visum and Vissim softwares, from the PTV Group, of which TIS is a partner and one of the main users in Portugal.


On the other hand, and in addition to the Traffic and Parking area, TIS has been strengthening its production capacity in Road Infrastructure Project, particularly dedicated to the urban project. These are projects with very specific characteristics, in the context of interventions of renovation or urban renewal of consolidated spaces where it is necessary to integrate the architecture project with the needs associated with a good performance of the road circulation, while ensuring the safety in the circulation of automobiles, collective transport, bicycles and pedestrians.


The way in which TIS deals with each problem, always in a large interaction with the various stakeholders, is widely recognized in the market, as proved by the diversity of clients who search us and their loyalty over the years. Among those are architecture and designer’s offices, real estate developers, municipalities and / or companies managing parking infrastructures.
