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

“Sarah’s work on Way 2 GO MAINE was instrumental. Her organizational skills, her “get up and go” and tenacity were essential to the success of this inaugural event. I was continually amazed at her knowledge of the people, businesses and organizations 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. I hope this pilot project is the first of many that GO MAINE has the privilege of working with Cushman Transportation Consulting.”

Rebecca Grover, Program Coordinator, 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.”

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

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!”
