Useful forecasts of travel demand are grounded in a thorough understanding of existing and future scenarios. RSG follows these principles to develop forecasts that support decision-makers with information on how existing travel patterns will shift as a region grows and how travel choices evolve with improved transit options, availability of ride share services, and new bike lanes.
We work closely with our clients to specify and calibrate appropriately sensitive modeling tools, tailored to their needs, and provide the training needed to make them productive. We are also well versed in utilizing standardized forecasting approaches like the FTA’s Simplified Trips on Project Software (STOPS), which we developed. These forecasts allow our clients to confidently make data-driven decisions that accommodate future growth in an efficient and sustainable manner.
