The Transport Planning Society aims to facilitate, develop and promote best practice in transport planning and provide a focus for dialogue between all those engaged in it, whatever their background or other professional affiliation.
We are the voice of UK urban transport. Our network brings together Greater Manchester, Liverpool City Region, London, North East, Sheffield City Region, West Midlands, West Yorkshire. Bristol and the West of England, Nottingham City Council and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport are associate members. As a network we do three things. We make the case for urban transport and for the funding and powers our members need to improve transport in their areas. We are Britain's premier network for urban transport professionals working in the public sector to help our members do more for less through learning from each other and through co-procurement. We also provide thought leadership for the wider sector through exploring and setting out ways forward on both cross sector and medium to long term challenges on everything from Total Transport to young people and from the implications of transformative social and technological change to how transport can contribute to improving public health.
Established in 2000, RTIG is a community organisation whose goal is to facilitate effective and efficient use of technology in passenger transport. We operate as a subscription organisation with almost a hundred members – primarily based in UK, but some in mainland Europe and a few beyond. RTIG’s members cover the local authority, transport operator and system supplier communities, allowing everyone to meet together in a spirit of mutual respect to achieve a solution that works for everyone.
Our core remit is technical, as a direct result of pressure from operators and local authorities for consistency in real time information systems. We develop specifications, and help develop wider standards (through national and European groups), and we ensure that these are practical though strong and active Working Groups. We regularly work with policymakers to ensure that the role and challenges of technology are properly addressed. We also support our members though quarterly Workshops, monthly Newsletters, and an extensive library of guidelines and position papers.
ATOC's mission is to work for passenger rail operators in serving customers and supporting a prosperous railway.
Set up after privatisation in 1993, the Association brings together all train companies to preserve and enhance the benefits for passengers of Britain’s national rail network, which jointly we do by providing these services:
a central clearing house for the train operators, allowing passengers to buy tickets to travel on any part of the rail network, from any station, through the Rail Settlement Plan
a customer experience operation, comprising:
National Rail Enquiries, giving passengers up-to-the-minute information on train times, fares, reservations and service disruption across the country; and
commercial activities, such as a range of discounted and promotional railcards, cutting the cost of travelling by train for groups including young people, families, senior citizens and people with disabilities
From 2011, the Rail Delivery Group has been responsible for policy formulation and communications on behalf of the whole rail industry.
