Public transport strategies & more

Newsletter 1, December 2017

Dear ,

Welcome to Modasti’s first newsletter. Modasti Consulting is Arjen Jaarsma, a public transport expert with 20 years of experience. 

We met or communicated during the last two years, and although you have not given me explicit permission to receive this newsletter, I hope you are pleased to receive it. And if not, do not worry, you can easily unsubscribe from this newsletter via the link at the bottom of the mail.

About Modasti Consulting and this newsletter

‘Modasti what?’ and ‘Are you a modest consultant?’ are two questions I often get. It is in a way a bit of a strange name, but Modasti Consulting is about public transport expertise, about the cities that plan to invest in their public transport system, about the strategic and financial challenges they face and so much more.

Modasti Consulting has existed since 2016, and its website has undergone a small makeover earlier this month. This also includes the introduction of a newsletter which will be distributed a couple of times per year.

Public transport strategies and much more

Modasti Consulting provides consulting services in Europe, Asia and Africa in five fields of expertise. Services are conducted by myself, sometimes in close cooperation with other experts.

The five fields of expertise are:

  • Public Transport Strategies
  • Bus Rapid Transit (BRT);
  • the introduction of Electric Buses;
  • Finance and Governance of public transport systems;
  • Risk Management in public transport operations.


Modasti Consulting is a member of the UITP, the International Association of Public Transport. On January 25th, I will visit UITP’s New Year Reception in Brussels.

Hope to hear from you!

2018 will be an exciting year with remarkable projects, interesting conferences and readable blogs on LinkedIn I publish every now and then. So, it would be nice to hear from you, and please follow me on LinkedIn or Twitter.

All the best wishes for the new year!
