SYSTRA keeps the world moving through connecting people and places

By enabling mobility, our work strengthens communities, increases social inclusion, fosters economic prosperity and supports environmental improvement. We deliver consultancy, engineering, development and specialist technical services that enable the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.

SYSTRA has been involved in UK mobility and mass transit schemes for over 50 years and has delivered projects in the Republic of Ireland for nearly 40 years. Under the MVA Consultancy brand our transport planners delivered the first large scale transport studies in the UK (leading to the implementation of the Tyne & Wear Metro). We have managed and developed London’s strategic transport model since 1987, including developing the tools to assess the capital’s congestion charge scheme, Crossrail/Elizabeth Line and other major rail schemes. As a member of the Rail Link Engineering joint venture, SYSTRA played a key role in delivering HS1, the UK’s first high speed line, and we are now part of the team delivering Crossrail.

Today we work on mobility schemes that connect communities across the UK and Ireland at all scales; from projects that facilitate walking and cycling for local trips to some of the largest infrastructure programmes.

Our UK and Ireland operations are on a fast-track growth path and have more than doubled in size with the acquisitions of JMP Consultants and SIAS Transport Planners in 2015 and TSP Projects in 2019. We employ nearly 900 people in the UK and Ireland and are actively recruiting across our engineering and consultancy practices.


Around the world, SYSTRA’s specialists plan, design, integrate, test, commission, project manage and deliver mass transit and mobility solutions that are relied on by more than 50 million people every day.
