WHAT WE DO

We offer a range of services
to help clients evaluate
infrastructure investments
and policy.

REVENUE FORECASTING is an essential part of a sound capital program for any asset owner. In the private sector, this is key for gauging opportunities and quantifying risk in potential infrastructure partnerships. We have been engaged for efforts such as:

  • Revenue forecasting of the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, Pennsylvania Turnpike, Indiana Toll Road and Chicago Skyway.
  • Impact analysis of congestion pricing on traffic and revenue of tolled bridges and tunnels, including the Hudson River bridges.
  • Revenue forecasting for parking facilities.

 

FREIGHT PLANNING requires insight into macroeconomics and trade patterns can alter demand for cargo facilities. We have assisted asset owners with:

  • Freight and commodity forecasting by trade in containers, bulk, and neo-bulk.
  • Analyzing port capacity and competitiveness.
  • Fee studies for developing more efficient pricing systems.
  • Intermodal rail capacity planning.
  • Air cargo planning.
  • Solid waste and recyclables commodity and generation studies.
  • Rail freight car leasing market analysis.
  • Tug and barge business planning for Hugo Neu.

 

RIDERSHIP FORECASTING is the first step in planning capacity, service modifications, and new ventures. We have performed ridership studies for a variety of transport modes:

  • Long Island Railroad non-commutation travel.
  • Metro North West-of-Hudson commuter lines.
  • Private ferry systems, such as the New Hudson River routes, East River ferry, Governors Island access and LaGuardia Airport access.

 

ECONOMIC IMPACT & COST-BENEFIT ANALYSES help owners identify key capital projects and prioritize critical maintenance, including:

  • Cost of delay and economic impact in the event of an outage of major transport facilities in a major metropolitan area.
  • Alternatives assessment for maximum economic development impact and environmental impact assessments.
  • Grant funding for rail, highway and port projects.

 

ASSET MANAGEMENT is key to ensuring reliability of strategic assets and lengthening their useful life. As part of a strategic partnership with Genesis Solutions, we help clients address maintenance cost and asset reliability in the operations of key infrastructure.

  • Current work includes EAM projects for MTA’s Metro North and New York City Transit.
