TREDIS – the standard for transportation economic evaluation

 What is TREDIS?

TREDIS® calculates the economic impacts, benefits and costs of proposed projects, programs and policies. It is a comprehensive decision support system that spans economic impact analysis, benefit-cost analysis, and financial analysis, as well as freight and trade impact analysis. It is the only system applicable for all modes – covering passenger and freight transport via aviation, marine and rail modes, as well as truck, car, bus, bicycle, and pedestrian travel.

Use TREDIS for deep analysis of a single project or simultaneous comparison of many projects. Impacts may be viewed at local, regional, state or national levels.
