TPP’s 2015 annual study trip took the company to Barcelona during the first weekend of October. The trip provided everyone with a great opportunity to explore some of the cities world class transport infrastructure. Barcelona has invested over the years in initiatives to improve the availability and promote sustainable transport throughout the city.
The study trip included a number of fantastic opportunities from walking tours in the Gothic Quarter where we witnessed servicing and refuse vehicles navigate the narrow city streets, to a boat tour of the Port of Barcelona which provides a key freight shipping gateway into Europe, to Barcelona’s citizens bicycle sharing scheme and extensive Metro network. All of which provided great fascination and inspiration for the whole team!
