Transit Service Market Evaluation
TransitTools is a suite of state-of-the-art software that helps transit planners understand potential markets, allocate scarce resources, negotiate support from local jurisdictions, and increase ridership.
Our clients use TransitTools to predict impacts of service changes, identify factors that drive ridership, influence policies of local jurisdictions, produce compelling maps and graphics, and to use scarce resources most effectively.
Based on recent analytic developments by Cambridge Systematics, TransitTools has three components:
- A unique Transit Market Segmentation approach that identifies unique behavioral market segments based on shared attitudes towards travel.
- The Service Planning Tool, which forecasts ridership changes resulting from changes in service levels and operational attributes such as crowding and reliability.
- The Competitive Index Tool, which evaluates the transit potential for a local area or corridor based on demographics, market conditions, and transportation alternatives.
