I am interested in transport (I I am more interested in public transport) and I have looked a bit into transport planning. I would like more information about transport planning and what things does a transport planner do.

Have you tried this great website? It is called Google!

I don't know how much research you have done, but consider the following job profiles:
https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-profiles/transport-planner
https://nationalcareers.service.gov.uk/job-profiles/transport-planner
https://careerpilot.org.uk/job-sectors/design-planning/job-profile/transport-planner

Other than general information, I think you get the more detailed information through the websites of the professional bodies or big name employer (e.g. a government website).

If you want something even more specific, you would likely need to speak to a transport planner or someone who works in the transport planning department. You're not likely going to find someone who does this on here, so you either need to network your way to find one or you would need to go on to a specific forum for transport planning.
