Historically, asset management has been a critical, but under-represented element of the transportation planning process.

Data Business Planning

Improved data business planning is a pressing concern for transportation agencies, especially in response to Federal requirements. We help clients address challenges with data availability and integration, transparency and accountability, and processes and systems. Our expertise in collecting, analyzing, integrating and organizing data gives agency leaders the information necessary to make critical decisions. And—because we are planning and policy experts as well as technicians—our solutions account for future demands along with immediate needs.

State, Regional and Local Freight Planning

As changes in the US and global economy drive up freight demand and stress freight transportation systems, Cambridge Systematics helps states, regions and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) plan to accommodate this growth—and capitalize on it through priority-driven investments. Our work allows agencies to understand the link between freight efficiency and economic vitality, improve freight operations while meeting mobility and livability goals, and implement projects and programs that address evolving needs.
