Transport related research has many different facets, including research and consultation activities spanning from the very local to the national.

Our researchers are able to focus on the issues that matter and work with clients to provide data and insight into today’s transport challenges. Throughout our history in this sector, we have delivered effective research and consultation to inform policy responses.

Our strength of experience in the sector means whether working as a sole supplier or in partnership with one of the major transport planning consultancies, BMG’s approach to transport related research remains the same; to understand exactly what the information requirements of the project are, so that a programme of research can be designed that fully and effectively addresses what is required.

Our portfolio of work has included;

  • Studies of travel patterns, behaviours and opinions
  • Tracking surveys of residents opinions regarding local highways
  • Mystery shopping
  • Road user charging surveys
  • Rural transport studies
  • Surveys for Local Transport Plans

We understand and have practical expertise of how different methodologies can be applied to transport projects and can advise on the most effective use of postal, online, CATI and CAPI surveys. Our extensive in-house resources mean we can add value to projects and provide a level of practical experience, transparency and reassurance that many others in the industry would struggle to match.

Our flexibility in terms of resources available is matched by our flexibility in terms of response and we are often able to accommodate projects that have a short notice period before starting and / or require a fast turnaround. Our Data Services department can provide data at agreed stages during field-work and within 24 hours of field end.
