Welcome to my professional blog, Transport Nexus. Before I explain what I am going to write about on this blog it is helpful if I unpack this name a bit. “Transport” describes public transportation and is particular to Europe and the English-speaking countries outside of North America. I chose “Transport” rather than “public transportation” or “transit” because I like the way that “transport” can be mode neutral in a way that public transportation and transit is not.
A nexus is a connection or series of connections. Which aptly describes transportation – a way of connecting from one place to another. I am particularly interested in how land use affect how people use transportation as well as how public transportation can be used more efficiently.
I welcome you to my blog and look forward to carrying on this conversation.
