As a leader in highly customized transportation surveys that focus on individual traveler decisions, we have designed, collected, and analyzed a wide range of observed and stated preference data to support the evaluation of transportation projects.
Specialized Modeling and Analysis
The new streams of locational data from cell phones and GPS devices can provide a better snapshot of today’s travel patterns but also a unique opportunity to enhance our understanding of the drivers of travel behavior.
The accurate measurement of travel demand and an in-depth understanding of its drivers requires the development of a broad regional or intercity system-level approach to transportation.
We perform modeling and statistical support for a wide variety of safety analysis.
Uncertainty is inherent to forecasting—from the underlying data used for estimation and calibration to the estimated variables within the models to the input assumptions about future conditions.
We have been developing travel demand forecasting models for over 40 years, including some of the most challenging and visible modeling projects in the nation. We pioneered many of the travel demand forecasting practices in use today.
Sound economic analysis means better decision making across the spectrum of transportation investments, from discrete projects to complete transportation systems. At Cambridge Systematics, our contributions to the field include many of the economic analysis processes and tools used across the country today.
Our practice encompasses Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA), Economic Impact Analysis (EIA), and Return on Investment (ROI), and our experience spans all transportation modes, operational improvements, pricing strategies, and decision-making for Federal, state, and local agencies.
