Jim MacIsaac Memorial Gathering

Jim MacIsaac Memorial Gathering

It was the end of an era for Transpo Group when Jim MacIsaac, our company founder and CEO for the first 20 years, passed away in early December. Jim was born and raised in Seattle, and pursued a 50-year career in transportation and land use planning in the region, working in both the public and private sectors. In 1975, he co-founded Transpo Group and was a mentor and good friend to our current leaders. Jim will be remembered for his integrity and commitment to high standards of research in transportation planning and modeling, as well as his loving care and concern for family and friends.

At his memorial service, both past and present Transpo employees and family members gathered to honor his memory. Jim’s legacy will continue to live on through our employees and our company values, and in our continued commitment to quality and creativity in all that we do.

Thank you, Jim. Rest in Peace.

Traffic Data Roadmap: Where We Have Been, Where We Are Going

Data Roadmap_620

Traffic data and how it is collected and handled has evolved along with changes in technology and policy. Early data collection efforts were largely performed by transportation professionals themselves with the primary method of collection done manually. With growing metropolitan areas and increased concurrency requirements, the need for more data collection led to the use of more tools to improve the efficiency of collection efforts, including roadway tubes and intersection count boards. With increasing demands and less time for engineers to collect data, private data collection companies emerged to collect and deliver information to transportation professionals.
