Every transportation investment has impacts, and the accurate assessment of these impacts is fundamental to the planning process. Information systems can apply sophisticated analytics to estimate costs and compute the transportation benefits and economic impacts of transportation projects. These systems also enable planners to see how changes in agency and community priorities impact the rankings, priority, and optimal allocation of resources across investments. Our experience spans capital projects and operating strategies across Federal, state and local agencies.
Whether allocating existing funds or making the case for more funding, transportation agencies are facing increasing pressure to demonstrate accountability by measuring and reporting the impact of resource allocation decisions on transportation performance.
