This good practice guide is composed for the master course 13120 Public Transport Planning held at the Department of Transport, Technical University of Denmark. It is intended to use as guide in the different planning aspects and assignments of the course. Since the course is about the planning of new public transport infrastructure this guide also focuses on the planning of new infrastructure. Furthermore, the new infrastructure in the course is expected to be a light rail and even though this guide aims at being general for public transport some of the issues evidently become more relevant for light rail. A light rail system is chosen as focus because light rail systems generally have higher impacts in the traffic modeling than busses and are more challenging in the planning than urban rail and metro. This is emanated by the assumption that a capability for planning light rail inevitable will enable a capability for planning both bus and rail. The guide is build as a full sketch investigation of a new public transport project ranging chronological from project clarification to physical and timetable planning to traffic modeling and project appraisal. The same steps that are expected to be fulfilled in the course. In the course the public transport project that is investigated is a real life relevant project. In this guide the project and the area of interest are fictitious in order to illustrate the planning issues better but also to avoid direct comparison. The theory of the different planning issues is described and examples are illustrated by figures and tables. Finally, I will like to acknowledge everyone who has participated in the process of creating this guide. It is my intention to update it continuous so corrections, comments and/or ideas are very welcome.
