Welcome to Researching Transit, the public transport research podcast. Your podcast hosts, Professor Graham Currie and Laura Aston, share the motivation for bringing you a podcast focused on public transport, and provide a taste for what you can expect to learn…

How can transit be made more resilient, efficient, convenient and reliable? How will cities continue to meet the access and mobility needs of a growing population, while mitigating congestion and supporting thriving economies? These are questions Graham and Laura will seek to answer by interviewing leading researchers from around the world.

The aim of Researching Transit is to engage the public in shared learning around contemporary issues and innovation in public transport and provide a platform for public transport research communication.
