As a prospective Transport Planner, can anyone point me in the direction of "typical duties/day" of a transport planner, what they actually do. I'd like someone to describe a typical day working on a new subway or rail alignment. I haven't been able to find many real accounts about this occupation on the web.
I also would like to know:
a) Are the jobs in private or public sectors
b) Is the salary similar to other planning disciplines?
c) Are there opportunities to practice abroad or travel abroad?
d) Do you need to be a lisenced to practice?
e) Do you need to be a highly quanitive/analytical person to excell?
