U.K. transportation consultant acquires CRA Int'l

Posted on January 28, 2009

Steer Davies Gleave has acquired the former transportation planning practice of Charles River Associates (CRA International), a global consulting firm with headquarters in Boston.

 

Known for innovative and conventional travel demand and revenue forecasting, CRA has established a long record of successful projects, including demand, revenue, planning and policy studies for rail, urban transit and aviation modes as well as for roads, tunnels and bridges.

 

The acquisition strengthens Steer Davies Gleave’s presence and growing portfolio of work in North America, and will enable the company to deliver substantial projects in the U.S. and Canada. The team acquired from CRA will collaborate with our New York and Vancouver, British Columbia offices to work across the region.

 

The combined experience resulting from this acquisition includes research into the economic impacts of transit investment, revenue analysis of the Las Vegas monorail, development of Sacramento’s 30-year Transit Master Plan, contribution to the preparation of urban and regional transportation plans including the Atlanta Comprehensive Transportation Plan, and studies and reviews of proposed high speed rail projects.
