Ciaran joined ITP in April 2012.  He has experience across many different disciplines of transport planning, particularly in public transport, data analysis, travel planning, development planning and monitoring and evaluation. He is adept at maintaining large datasets, the rigorous processes of statistical analysis and the interpretation of results. Alongside his valuable analytical and report writing skills, he has broad experience in undertaking qualitative research including the delivery and reporting of focus groups and in-depth interviews.

Ciaran has particular expertise in the evaluation of sustainable transport projects and has been involved in delivering evaluation studies including work for the World Bank, Scottish Government, as well as on behalf of a number of Local Authorities. He project managed the collection and analysis of pre-scheme data as part of an evaluation of CityConnect, a programme of cycle and walking improvements in the Leeds City Region, on behalf of Metro (now West Yorkshire Combined Authority), in association with Leeds City Council and Bradford Council. The project involved the delivery and analysis of 2,000 householder surveys alongside the analysis of corroborative data to determine the pre-scheme conditions.  More recently he project managed the end of project evaluation of Stoke-on-Trent’s £4.961 million LSTF programme, Travel Smart. The work included an impact and a process evaluation of the programme. An in-depth analysis and comparison of pre and post implementation data was undertaken to determine the impacts of Travel Smart on the target area. The impact on carbon emissions and health were also calculated using DEFRA’s carbon emission rates and the WHO’s HEAT tool respectively.

Prior to joining ITP he worked for Arup on a wide range of projects, in particular in development planning producing Transport Assessments, Transport Statements and Travel Plans as part of the planning application process for both public and private sector clients.
