Decision Lens, a provider of desktop and Web-based collaborative decision making software, has been awarded a contract by the District of Columbia of Transportation (DDOT) to provide software and services to prioritize and allocate resources to various transportation related projects across the nation’s capital.
The mission of the DDOT is to develop and maintain a cohesive, sustainable transportation system that delivers safe, affordable, and convenient ways to move people and goods — while protecting and enhancing the natural, environmental, and cultural resources of the District.
Washington, D.C. has the second-busiest transit system in the nation and the second-highest walk-to-work rate among major U.S. cities, and has introduced the first public bicycle-sharing program in the country.
“The District of Columbia has distinct challenges for public transportation, with high volumes of pedestrian and cycle traffic competing with automobile and mass transit vehicles,” explained Decision Lens CEO John Saaty. “Decision Lens’ extensive background in resource planning for public transportation will be critical to DC DOT’s success in the future.”
Decision Lens already is providing guidance and support for mass transit concerns in the nation’s capital. The company worked closely with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to prioritize resources and projects under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The San Francisco Municipal Transit Authority (SFMTA), Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority (VTA), Utah Transit Authority (UTA) among other transit agencies are using Decision Lens. Pennsylvania and Minnesota Departments of Transportation also use Decision Lens for resource allocation and planning.
In addition, Decision Lens software is used widely throughout state and federal government agencies and across the Intelligence Community, with clients including the US Navy, the Joint Staff and CENTCOM. Decision Lens also serves numerous well-known national and international commercial clients such as Siemens, Johnson and Johnson, Corporate Executive Board, and Superbowl-winning Green Bay Packers, among other organizations.
