Planning

From policy studies to long range transportation plans, we see how transportation modes can effectively interact, how technology can provide better traveler information, and how non-motorized modes like bicycling and walking can be convenient and safe. We incorporate smart growth strategies for our transportation clients and the communities they serve —so the dividends of their investment can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Our Expertise

Extensive Planning & Integrated Forecasting
We’ve provided long range transportation plans, corridor and feasibility studies, congestion management, and policy planning to dozens of state departments of transportation, local governments, planning organizations, and tolling authorities.

We integrate strong planning with travel demand forecasting and modeling to yield comprehensive plans that incorporate all vital data points. In addition, we use interactive technology and visualization to effectively communicate plans to you and get buy-in from stakeholders, including regulating agencies or impacted communities.

Decades of Delivering Results
We’ve worked with many of our clients for two and three decades. Our clients stay with us because of our meticulous attention to detail, thorough processes, and high-quality work delivered on-time. We provide personal service and local expertise on every project.

    Modeling

    Using advanced modeling software packages, GIS, web applications, and spreadsheet analysis, we develop and apply models throughout the U.S. to analyze the relationship between transportation supply and travel demand. We use travel demand modeling and analysis to fuel effective decision-making at all levels of planning from system-wide or regional (long range transportation planning) to sub-area studies (impacts of a project on the immediately surrounding system) to corridor analysis (including project development and environmental studies and alternatives analysis studies).
