The requirements for transportation systems are changing at ever faster rates and operators, manufacturers and suppliers are having to adapt more quickly and employ even greater foresight to the future requirements of their customers.

Rapid growth in the number of public transit trips in our cities; the finite nature of petroleum resources and our socities imperatives to reduce the cause and effects of global warming are the compelling drivers of change.

Transportation TrainBy their nature, transportation systems and vehicles are expensive and have long operational lives. The establishment of requirements and the design decisions made in the early stages of the project have a significant impact on the performance of the vechicles over decades long lifetimes.

At Bayly, we understand the forces of change and your needs.  We understand how good design and engineering impact on reducing the manufacturing cost, running costs and maintenance costs of your vehicles and their systems over their lifetime.

Bayly's experience in the design of rolling stock reaches back to the 1980's and the work undertaken on the design of State Rail NSW's HPT Intercity trains and the original Tangara trains.
