University of Leeds

Forty years’ sustained excellence in teaching and applied research in transport


The University’s Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) is a world leader in transport teaching and research. It covers the full spectrum of passenger and freight traffic, as well as pricing, safety, policy and environmental impact. Its innovative software can predict and simulate driver behaviour; other tools examine passenger choice between different modes of transport. ITS graduates hold key positions in transport planning organisations worldwide, giving the Institute enormous influence on national and international transport policies.
