Niels van Oort

Niels van Oort works as an assistant professor Public Transport at Delft University of Technology and is co-director of the Smart Public Transport Lab. Via previous jobs as consultant and transport planner he has been involved in several public transport projects for over 15 years. His main fields of expertise are public transport planning, data-driven design, with special interest in the passenger perspective, service reliability and multimodality. In addition to teaching, Niels often presents his work at conferences and he frequently publishes articles in (international) journals.

Niels studied traffic and transport at Delft University of Technology and finished his Master on Public Transport in 2003. He started to work as a researcher at HTM, the public transport company of The Hague. During this job, he started a PhD on service reliability in public transport. He performed his research part time at Delft University of Technology and in 2009 he joined the public transport research group of Professor Wilson at MIT. In 2010 he changed jobs and started to work as a public transport consultant at Goudappel Coffeng mobility consultants. He finished his PhD in 2011 and started to work parttime at Delft university of Technology in 2012 as an assistant professor. He is involved in several studies concerning network and timetable optimization, thereby applying his research into practice. Since 2018, he manages the Smart Public Transport Lab.
