Foursquare ITP has extensive experience working on regional long-range transportation planning issues, including mid- and long-range transportation plan development, coordinating between agencies with differing goals, and developing both fiscally constrained and unconstrained plans. We utilize scenario-based planning and prioritization based on established performance metrics as well as input from clients and key stakeholders to develop multi-modal transportation plans that the region can work toward.
