About CS

Cambridge Systematics has more than 40 years' experience leveraging technology and ingenuity to advance the world of transportation: planning and policy, movement of people and goods, software design and development, and, underlying it all, effective partnerships and objective analysis. We build cutting-edge yet practical solutions that make a meaningful difference in every community we touch. We succeed through collaboration. We engage. We partner. We achieve.

Cambridge Systematics, Inc. was founded in 1972 by four Massachusetts Institute of Technology professors and a colleague who shared an understanding that transportation's greatest challenges call for thoughtful, objective, research-based solutions.

The Cambridge Systematics leadership team focuses on ensuring that the firm continues to earn our reputation as a groundbreaker in providing innovative, objective, high-quality and pragmatic solutions to the transportation industry’s mobility, infrastructure, safety and economic challenges.


Our dedication to building more livable communities and enriching quality of life goes beyond the work we do for clients.

The breadth and diversity of our client base reflect our dedication and the recognition that we are leaders in the transportation industry.

In our forty-plus years, Cambridge Systematics consistently has attracted and developed the foremost leaders in transportation consulting and technology. We fully recognize that our employees constitute our greatest asset and most important investment. As in everything we do, when it comes to offering a rewarding place to learn, excel, and build a career, we go well beyond the ordinary.


Cambridge Systematics maintains a network of offices to ensure we stay close to our clients. Each of our consultants balances national policy expertise with local and regional insight, applying deep subject-matter leadership wherever it might benefit the work we do with our clients.
