Profile Angela Smith Sustainable Transport Consultant

I have worked in transport planning since 2004 when I began my career with David Tucker Associates.  As a transport planning consultant in the private sector I  had the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, large and small from residential, agricultural to employment and freight. 

 

I became an independent consultant in 2012 focusing on sustainable transport, in particular, Travel Plans.  I have also developed detailed on the ground experience of cycling infrastructure for all abilities having trained and worked as a Bikeability Instructor in Warwickshire.

 

I have also recently been awarded a PhD which focused on visitor experiences of transport use in rural tourism using the New Forest National Park as a case study area.  My PhD thesis can be accessed here:

The following paper has also been published in the Journal of Sustainable Transport:

My PhD research has developed my interest and understanding of how wider non-transport factors influence mode choice. 

 

In 2018 I contributed to the Government Office for Science’s Foresight Report ‘The Future of Mobility’.  As part of the research team I contributed to the explanation for transport mode choice in terms of variation in transport availability and life-stage.  The full report can be viewed at:

I currently work part of my week within Cherwell District Council’s Bicester Delivery Team, tasked with increasing active and sustainable travel to support the growth of the town.
