Transportation Market Analysis and Planning Tools
To fully assess trade development opportunities, decision makers need a detailed understanding of trade flow—including what's moving, where it is moving to and from, and how it is getting there. Transit planners use our suite of state-of-the-art software and analytics processes for everything from allocating resources and deciding on service changes to understanding potential markets and negotiating support.
The Transit Competitiveness Index (TCI) is an analytical process that divides a region’s population into market segments to support strategic planning and travel demand forecasting. Based on more than a decade of research with dozens of transit agencies and metropolitan planning organizations across the country, Cambridge Systematics refined TCI’s complex algorithms and improved its web-based user interface. Clients now can instantly screen and evaluate alternatives, potential transit expansions, and station locations, testing the impact of policies before they happen.
