Transport Economists’ Group

Formed in 1973, the Group provides a forum for people involved in transport economics to meet regularly and discuss matters of mutual interest. Membership is open to both economists working in transport and all others whose work is connected with transport economics. The aim of the Group is to improve the quality of transport management, planning and decision making by promoting lectures, discussions and publications related to the economics of transport and of the environment within which the industry functions.

Next meeting 26 June 2024 at 18:00 to 19:30 BST at Steer


Michael Colella of Steer will speak on “Developing high-speed rail in North America”.

We look sometimes in envy and sometimes in horror of how North America’s transport system has developed over the decades to its current car and air dominance, but recent developments in both Canada and USA suggest the tide may be turning. Please join Michael Colella from Steer, who will discuss some of the most exciting his-speed rail proposals in the world, outlining the context, project development and possible funding streams.
