Here are a few thoughts from folks who have worked with Sarah and Cushman Transportation Consulting, LLC over the past several years:

Jonathan_Culley_headshot_ Jan 2016 (003)“Sarah has been an invaluable resource to Redfern Properties in creating Transportation Demand Management (“TDM”) plans for our multi-family housing developments. She brings great energy and extensive experience to her transportation consultancy. Sarah’s work has been vital to gaining regulatory approvals. But more importantly, Sarah has pushed Redfern Properties toward more progressive thinking about the future of multi-modal transportation and provided thoughtful ideas on how we can design our new apartment developments to ‘meet the moment’.” 

Jonathan Culley, Managing Partner, Redfern Properties

“Sarah has assisted GO MAINE on events and outreach since 2017. Her energy, work ethic and organizational skills have been essential to GO MAINE’s growth and success. Sarah has excelled at all tasks thrown at her, from organizing, to presenting, to understand the big picture of TDM. I have been particularly impressed with her ability to handle multiple projects and still make me feel like I am her only client. I am continually amazed at her knowledge of the people, organizations and businesses involved in all modes of transportation in Maine. It is obvious that improving transportation and mobility for all Mainers is not just a job for Sarah, but a passion.”

Rebecca Grover, Program Director, GO MAINE

She brings institutional knowledge and the respect of colleagues from all over the state to all her work. Finally, her openness to all perspectives, her appreciation of public process and her commitment to collaboration and consensus make her a valuable member of any team.”

Sarah is a dedicated bicycle and pedestrian planning professional, fully capable and persistent in her efforts to improve each community’s access to active transportation.”

Robert Johnson, Director of Consulting at PedNet Coalition

dan-at-saco-oob-2“Sarah is truly transformational by nature in that she creates positive change in everything in which she gets involved. She is smart, collaborative, organized and impactful – she can handle any assignment or project. Sarah takes initiative and understands how to turn vision into reality through teamwork and leadership. She is very responsive to others’ needs and capabilities and is straight forward and honest – she quickly gains trust. She excels at inspiring and enabling others to accomplish goals. Sarah is professional and she cares.”

Dan Stewart, former MaineDOT Bicycle & Pedestrian Program Manager

jon_petruschke“Simply put, Sarah Cushman time and time again has been an invaluable asset to me and my family when consulting with us during various car and transportation dilemmas. Sarah is a wealth of knowledge regarding automobiles, travel, and commuting, and she shares her knowledge in a way that is very accessible to the lay person. After one of these interactions with Sarah, I always walk away having been educated a little more about my car and other ways of getting around, and feeling empowered and able to tackle problems more independently in the future. I’m so happy Sarah is out there, doing what she’s doing!”

Jon Petruschke, Portland, ME
