We work across the entire United States, from large cities and urban counties to small towns and college campuses. Click on a region of the country for a fuller view of CTG projects in one of these areas:

Photo Minneapolis, MN Bottineau Corridor CTG led the effort in developing bus and rail operating plans and O&M costs for Bottineau Transitway DEIS project alternatives. As this corridor enters the preliminary engineering phase, we continue to do operations planning including LRT travel time estimates and service requirements, supporting bus network definition, O&M cost estimation and transit network coding for the travel demand model.

We are currently conducting a Comprehensive Operations Analysis (aka Moving You Forward) for DART’s bus network. Download case study >

Photo Baton Rouge, LA CATS COA, Market Research, and Alternatives Analysis For this multilayered three part study effort, CTG completed a Comprehensive Operations Analysis to support a tax referendum to expand and improve transit services. The tax passed and CATS implemented the COA Short-Range Plan recommendations in 2014. Download case study >

Photo Dakota County, MN Cedar Avenue Transitway (Red Line) Implementation Plan Update CTG prepared Cedar Avenue BRT (Red Line) service plans for opening year and future year conditions before Red Line service began. Now that service has been in operation since 2013, we are tasked with updating this initial implementation plan. We are analyzing existing ridership and service characteristics to identify near-term and long-term strategies for improving ridership. Download case study >

Photo Tulsa, OK Tulsa Regional Transit System Plan (Fast Forward) We were responsible for developing the bus system plan for INCOG’s Fast Forward study. Components included a peer analysis, review of existing transit service, evaluation and development of immediate-term, intermediate, and long-term bus service recommendations. Fast Forward identified the Peoria-Riverside corridor for BRT improvements as an immediate next step.Download case study >
