Client: San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA)
Numerous community-based organizations (CBOs) serve the residents of Bayview Hunters Point in San Francisco and provide transportation to their youth & senior program clients. This project brought together neighborhood stakeholders with multiple city organizations to collaboratively develop a business plan for a shared van shuttle service that would offer improved mobility and connections within the community while maximizing use of scarce resources.
Transportation Analytics provided all of the financial analysis for the business plan. Early tasks focused on a benchmarking evaluation of the CBOs’ current transportation costs, both individually and in terms of the total resources being spent on transportation services. Based on the proposed operating plan for the shared service, Transportation Analytics created a financial model that demonstrated estimated costs for prospective participants under multiple scenarios. The business plan is now being used as the basis for development of formal MOUs in preparation for detailed service planning activities.
