Fehr & Peers recognizes the vital importance of listening to client needs, concerns, and questions for every project. There is no single “standard practice” when it comes to transportation forecasting and operations. We partner with our clients to understand specific critical questions, audiences, resources, and schedules. All of these elements are then used to craft a tailored approach to match the analysis circumstances. We communicate potential outcomes, consequences, and limitations clearly and work to help clients create imagery effectively explaining the analytical story.
We rigorously test and evaluate new data sources, software, and analytical techniques.
We participate actively in research and development (R&D) supported by public, institutional, and private entities to advance the state of the practice in a continually changing transportation industry. We spend time with our clients each year to learn about their latest transportation problems and challenges, and use that input to direct our R&D actions toward innovations in data, software, and analytical techniques that can best address client needs; often finding our own investments to be the most valuable to our clients.
We consider risk and uncertainty in every project.
Forecasting future travel demand and analyzing transportation network performance are fundamental steps in helping our clients make decisions about how to modify future land use patterns and transportation networks. We have developed data and analytical approaches that directly address uncertainty, and in turn help our clients understand specific risks and test the resiliency of network modifications to improve confidence in making large, fixed infrastructure decisions.
We are enthusiastic transportation students and share our knowledge.
Fehr & Peers invests substantially every year to gain new knowledge so that we may inform our clients of the latest advances and transform our practices to meet the changing needs of the industry, regional/state laws and regulations, and the communities we serve. Our consultant leaders are frequently presenting at conferences and industry events to share new knowledge and trends for advancing the industry and its practices.
