Helping People Have Happy Commutes, Improving Quality of Life

Is your firm interested in collaborating on a bicycle, pedestrian, or transportation demand management project or program?

Or are you dealing with parking issues at your business or organization?  Wondering how to get started (or get your employees started) doing more walking, biking, carpooling, or taking public transit? Or just thinking about your household and owning one less car?

Owned and operated by Sarah Cushman – a transportation planner, educator, consultant and former ASE Master-Certified auto mechanic – Cushman Transportation Consulting, LLC serves as a source of solid information and help with planning, promotion, and making transportation choices and changes.

Sarah offers:

  • Bicycle, pedestrian, and Transportation Demand Management project and program assistance
  • Exploration of individual and organizational transportation needs and financial impacts
  • Training and consultations for using – and planning for and encouraging the use of – active transportation (biking, carpooling, taking public transit, walking, telecommuting, etc.)
  • Environmentally-responsible and financially savvy car maintenance and driver education

The bad news we all know: heavy financial burdens are being put on businesses and tax-payers for roads and parking, fuel costs are tough to manage, middle-income earners spend 22% of their income on transportation (and lower-income households spend 42% on average), obesity rates are soaring, and 40% of local air pollution and climate-changing carbon emissions come from transportation sources.

However, the good news is that organizations and individuals have practical transportation options that will save money and improve public and environmental health.
