Getting Started

Welcome to OmniTRANS — the transport planning application designed for integrated modelling of multi-modal transport systems.
The video tutorials will help you become familiar with the software and understand the core philosophy and concepts of the application.The real strength of OmniTRANS is its ability to integrate all aspects of transport modelling and analysis into one project which can be gradually evolved in its modelling details and its number of scenarios while keeping pace with the latest transport modelling techniques.


Watch the videos

Following are the OmniTRANS's multi-lessons video tutorials that  guide you through the interface and demonstrate many common modelling tasks. After visualising them, you will be in a better position to explore the software, to make use of projects that have been built for you, or to build transport models of your own.


The video tutorials use for a great part the Dutch city of Delft as a context to show you how to start working in OmniTRANS. This demonstration project accompanies the software and it can be used to repeat most of the steps demonstrated in the videos.


Please notice, the player can also play videos in full-screen mode.
