Futures bringing together key individuals from eight research groups in four institutions from a wide variety of disciplines, the majority in 5 Departments. researchers are working with a stakeholder group led by ITS UK to provide advice, focus and to confirm relationships to support focused reseacc activities in a subsequent proposal. In the context of understanding drivers for change, the Scoping Study will identify research needs and opport in three related and overlapping areas of traveller services, traffic and transport systems and services and the environment. Outreach, to ensure the programme engages fully with all those involved in sustainable urban transport is a key activity.
