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.

MAPS: Mobility, Access, & Pricing Study

Client: San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA)

Transportation Analytics was part of the PBS&J-led consultant team that conducted the preliminary feasibility evaluation of implementing congestion charging in the City of San Francisco.  The Study Team explored how different charging schemes might be able to mitigate traffic congestion, reduce air pollution, and develop a revenue stream to help improve local transit operations.  In December, 2010, the SFCTA Board accepted the initial study and recommended moving forward with the next stage of planning activities.  Transportation Analytics had a multi-faceted role on the project including:

  • financial analysis of potential pricing scenarios, including a revenue snapshot screening tool and a 30-year cash flow model
  • providing expertise in financing alternatives
  • modeling the financial impact and sensitivity of different pricing policies
  • supporting the analysis of transit system performance impacts
  • communicating the implications of various operating assumptions
  • preparing major portions of the final report
