RSG’s Research Examines Drone Delivery Service

We’re excited to see RSG’s research on drone delivery service included in a recent article titled, “I Had Lunch Flown in by Project Wing.” A study by RSG and Professor Goodchild from the University of Washington found that Project Wing’s drone delivery service generates 22 times fewer carbon emissions than a delivery vehicle over an average delivery trip in Canberra, Australia. This reduction in carbon emissions ties with Project Wing’s goal of making delivery more environmentally friendly and reducing road congestion.

RSG’s Work Supports EWR’s $2.3B Terminal A Redevelopment

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey recently approved nearly $500 million for early phase projects of Newark Airport’s $2.3 billion Terminal A Redevelopment. This includes $75M for foundation work on new terminal frontage to accommodate a future AirTrain alignment. Construction is slated to start in 2018.

RSG played a critical role in the planning for this major AirTrain construction project. We led a large data collection, analysis, and forecasting effort which informed decisions on whether to replace and enhance AirTrain infrastructure (or implement another mode like bus service) and how to design the infrastructure, train features, and services to meet future ridership demand.
