Expert economic advice to regional, national and local government agencies, transportation operators, and other businesses.

The link between investment and economics is at the heart of current thinking on transportation policy. Across the world there has been a move toward objective-led transportation funding that takes into account the effect of policies and projects on health, the environment, economic growth and employment.

A rigorous application of economic tools and techniques can help decision makers to:

  • Estimate the benefits and costs of a transportation project or policy
  • Assess Wider Economic Impacts such as agglomeration effects
  • Compare the outcomes of different policy and project options in a structured way
  • Define price-based measures to help align travel behavior with regulatory and policy goals
  • Design pricing and incentive systems for transportation agencies & operators
  • Investigate the value and effectiveness of measures intended to achieve broader policy aims, for example carbon reduction
