Technology Assessment

LTK Transportation Planners apply sophisticated economic and analytic techniques to the many complicated issues facing agencies, railroads and regional planning organizations in determining appropriate technological choices.  As the number of modes and sub-modes increases, we can support technology assessments of the range of potential modes, including:

  • Conventional Bus
