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.
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.
