By 2030, 60 percent of the world’s population will live in cities, up from about 50 percent today. The number of megacities (more than ten million people) is expected to rise to 41 in 2030 from 31 today.
As cities continue to grow with rapid urban migration, urban mobility is emerging as one of the greatest challenges facing city planners.

Congestion is costing cities as much as 2 to 4 percent of their GDP – taking into consideration lost time, wasted fuel, and increased cost of doing business.
With more than 128 (to be updated) mass transit projects in over 30 countries under our belt, Meinhardt knows what it takes to keep cities moving.
At Meinhardt, we understand the operational requirements of public transport systems, including rail systems, and how they are supposed to move people safely and reliably.
The best public transport systems are designed to move large numbers of passengers across distances. Such systems usually are intermodal, containing other modes of transport, making them challenging for designers and engineers. Multidisciplinary engineering consultants are best-placed to undertake railway projects, as they cover the full span of engineering capabilities.
Meinhardt’s experience in the design and construction supervision of mass transit systems, including M&E work for major stations and rail interchanges, civil engineering works in railway tunnels, railway alignments, system-wide engineering and the structural and civil engineering of new underground stations has demonstrated our turn-key railway capabilities. Together with clients, we are invested in the long-term future of transport systems.
Get in touch today and let our planners and engineers help shape your mass transit plans.
