In 1992, DSC worked with MVA and Pieda to prepare land-use scenarios for the Merseyside Integrated Transport Study (MERITS), and to assess the impact of alternative transport strategies on the prospects for urban regeneration (using the DSCMOD model). The study also involved some consideration of the impact of long-distance transport links on the Merseyside economy, using the DSC European model. The conclusions of MERITS provided the basis for subsequent package bids by the Merseyside transport authorities.

In 1996-97, DSC managed a joint project with MVA for Merseytravel, which reviewed the role of public transport in promoting social and economic regeneration, and made various recommendations in relation to the appraisal of transport schemes.
