Nick Phillips

Accessibility Team Leader
Borough of Poole

Nick Phillips graduated with an Honours degree in Transport Management from Aston University and has enjoyed an interesting and varied career in the industry ever since. Nick has worked for the Borough of Poole for the last twelve years and currently leads the Accessibility Team. Responsibilities include development of public transport (bus, rail and taxi licensing) community transport and walking and cycling.

The public transport remit includes close partnership working with local bus operators to secure modal shift. This has been particularly successful in Poole, with ridership almost doubling from 5.3 million to 10.2 million in the last decade, which is one of the highest patronage increases recorded in the country.

Nick project manages the Real Time Information System for the Poole/Bournemouth conurbation and the system has recently been fully upgraded following the award of the DfT’s Better Bus Funding.
