Transportation Planning

Transit Planning, Operations, and Design
CHS Consulting Group’s principals have completed hundreds of public transit, engineering and planning projects in the past 20 years. Our specialty is in “doable” and “workable” plans that can be implemented. We do not write reports that sit on shelves; we perform studies that make ferries sail, buses run, and trains roll. Our studies are grounded in realistic patronage forecasts, reasonable operating scenarios, and feasible financial projections designed to improve local and regional mobility. We understand why people ride transit, and also appreciate the requirements of an efficient transit operation. Balancing these criteria is essential to developing transportation solutions that have low costs but provide high benefits. Our staff are extremely knowledgeable in public transit finance, and have developed successful funding scenarios for many of our projects by enlisting public support and financing for projects that represent effective expenditures of public funds.to reach consensus and promote sustainability. CHS has extensive public transportation planning and operations experience working with urban and rural transit providers, municipalities, and state agencies. Our work covers a range of public transportation modes, from buses and trains to hovercrafts and ferries. As a comprehensive transit planning firm, we provide insightful analyses into daily transit operations, as well as innovative approaches to complex issues and problems.
