Travel Access as a Key to Equitable Planning

Travel Access as a Key to Equitable Planning

Analyzing travel accessibility measures how well current transportation networks connect us to destinations and exposes potential modal or equity limitations that may be causing difficulties for some users or geographic areas. Therefore, it serves as an important tool in effective planning. Learn more and explore our travel access video.
Street Safety in an Autonomous Vehicle Future

Street Safety in an Autonomous Vehicle Future

Autonomous vehicles may have the potential to support core elements of the Safe System approach, which strives to eliminate fatal and serious transportation injuries. Fehr & Peers partnered with ITE to publish “Autonomous Vehicle Considerations under a Safe System Framework,” which explores potential AV benefits, risks, and considerations within the Safe System framework.
TrendLab+: Scenario Planning for Pandemic Recovery and Beyond

TrendLab+: Scenario Planning for Pandemic Recovery and Beyond

Our FP Think group recently completed an update to our TrendLab+ tool for forecasting travel demand effects of emerging trends in transportation, including the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and emerging transportation technologies. TrendLab+ has been assisting clients across the US through presentations, workshops, and a wide variety of project analyses and assessments.

We empower our staff to be forward-thinking.

Our culture generates a sustained interest for better ways of approaching complex questions. We encourage our staff to take the initiative and apply their skills creatively and with a sense of urgency.

Transportation Network Companies/Ride Hailing

Transportation network companies such as Uber and Lyft have created new travel choices for many. However, this has created ripple effects that the market and government are still trying to grasp. We have examined the issues from every perspective in order to best answer tough questions from our clients and the communities we serve.

Autonomous Vehicles

How will autonomous vehicles (AVs) impact the evolution of our communities, the way we plan and design our transportation network, and how we provide mobility to all socio-economic groups? Our Autonomous Vehicle Technical Initiative is actively tackling these challenging questions.

Micromobility

As e-scooters, e-bikes, and other micromobility devices proliferate across the world, cities are facing new challenges in accommodating these modes. We are helping communities and companies better understand how micromobility fits into the transportation ecosystem to make informed decisions around policy, design, and data management.
