Our increasing frustration with growing traffic congestion is matched by our inability to doing something about it. We need to do more with less as our problems become more complex and solutions more expensive. Creative and innovative solutions are needed to address today's transportation challenges, but they need to be cost-effective, tied to our goals, and supported by technical analyses rooted in common sense. We can meet the challenge because we must.
Bruce Mori has more than 20 years of consulting experience that spans the globe. He specializes in transportation systems planning and travel demand forecasting for major metropolitan areas and Landmark Events with a focus on rapid transit systems, integrated transportation land use planning, and sustainable transportation principles.
