Land Use & Transportation

Unlike other firms, we internally finance our own leading-edge research on key topics related to land use and transportation integration to give our clients the best possible information and recommendations. Much of this research centers around quantifying the effects of various built environment factors on trip generation and mode choice. This work has been assembled into our MainStreet tool, which provides an accurate and comprehensive estimate of trip generation for both suburban and urban conditions. Our TDM+ tool quantifies the effects of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs on vehicle miles traveled, empowering clients to make informed decisions with respect to their investments. We have published numerous papers on our research and are often engaged by agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State of California to put our work into practice via the development of improved analysis methods and policy guidance.
