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.

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.
Our staff comprises the largest and most experienced group of transportation modelers in the industry. We are experts in both activity-based modeling and more-traditional trip based modeling for both passenger and freight applications.
TourCast is a powerful activity-based modeling platform for travel behaviors such as time shifting, telecommuting, transit use and the interactions of household members. As the largest and most experienced group of transportation modelers in the industry, we have been developing travel demand forecasting models for over 40 years. We are experts in both activity-based modeling and more traditional trip based modeling for passenger and freight applications.
CS has continuously advanced the state of the practice in freight and truck modeling. Our methods combine the best of commodity flow models, vehicle-based travel demand models, operational simulations and modal diversion models. We integrate these and other tools for an approach that considers mobility, economic impact, benefit-cost, air quality and safety analysis. Our current initiatives include the development of advanced regional freight models that incorporate supply chain and urban logistics practices in the modeling framework.
