Prof Peter White: Biography

I joined the University (then known as the Polytechnic of Central London) in 1971, as a Lecturer in Public Transport Systems, receiving the title of Professor in 1992. Throughout this period I have been responsible for teaching in this and related subjects in transport planning at postgraduate level. I have developed research activities in this field through supervision of research students, MSc dissertations and research staff, along with personal research. This has focused in recent years on impacts of privatisation and  deregulation in the coach, bus and rail sectors, together with specific innovations such as the role of smartcard data, and impacts of teleworking on transport demand.
