Gretchen works on a range of transit and multimodal projects, specializing in transit service studies for systems of varying sizes, from small town to statewide. She has played key roles in statewide transit assessments, comprehensive system redesigns, streetcar feasibility studies and alternatives analyses, shuttle designs, and traffic analyses. Her technical expertise includes data collection, data analysis, GIS, mapping, and Synchro. Gretchen brings a passion for distilling data to make it digestible for everyone and interpreting it to tell a compelling story.
Previously, Gretchen worked for a small urban public transit agency that helped shape her ideals of how good transit service can positively influence many lives. Since joining Nelson\Nygaard, she has worked on diverse projects including an analysis of Census origin-destination data to study the potential market of work-place shuttles at FrontRunner commuter rail stations outside of Salt Lake City, and a comprehensive view of Ohio’s transit market, for people who have choices and for those who rely on transit as their primary mode of transportation.
