Ricardo Rail & Transit

Experts in Critical and Complex Railway Systems

We work with governments, operators, infrastructure managers and manufacturers, offering expert advice to ensure railways deliver the highest possible value to their customers and wider communities.

Whether you are looking to develop new regional transport plans, introduce low-emission technologies or improve the journey experience for your customers, we bridge the divide between core engineering disciplines and the economic and environmental challenges of rail transport.

We offer trusted advice and practical solutions across the entire rail project life cycle:

  • Strategy and planning: Bringing knowledge of the rail domain to the development of sustainable transport networks.
  • Project delivery: Expert support for seamlessly integrating your project into the wider rail system.
  • Asset optimisation: Data analysis, modelling and research focused on outcomes.
  • Reducing environmental impact: Supporting rail’s contribution to a low-carbon world.
  • Independent assurance: A world-leading portfolio of rail certification and assessment services.

How We Help

Our service mix of strategic consultancy, in-house engineering, and independent assurance and testing means we can approach your project from a unique vantage point.

Within our teams are experts who know your expectations, but also understand the rail industry’s structures and idiosyncrasies, its complex system interfaces, and the global standards and local practices that underpin day-to-day operations.

Our role is to bring the expertise you need to navigate the industry’s operational, commercial and regulatory challenges, and ensure you have all the resources you need to deliver a safe, reliable and sustainable railway in any part of the world.
