There is a strong interdependence between the transport sector and urban planning occuring in both directions thus, when (re)structuring a zone of the territory one must think simultaneously on how the transport system will answer the needs of the displaced population who live and / or work there.


In contrast, ignoring urban occupation when planning a new transport system is by itself a high-risk factor that usually leads to situations of lower demand and use of the investments made.

From our point of view, a strong link between transport and mobility systems is crucial for they are there to serve the citizens and promote quality of life on the cities.


For this reason, the approach adopted by TIS in the development of Transport Studies (whether being public or individual transport) and in Mobility and Transport Plans implies a full understanding of the way in which the territory is organized and the land uses presented (and how they interrelate). In many studies, proposals involving the urban planning process are summarized.


TIS has a vast experience collaborating with consulting and designer teams in the development of solutions for territorial planning instruments at different scales.
