VIA Streetcar Feasibility Study

San Antonio, Texas

Working as part of a larger multidisciplinary team lead by Parsons, Catalyst was engaged to prepare the economic development portion of a feasibility study to locate new streetcar rail lines within the City limits of San Antonio. As part of this task, Catalyst prepared market programming forecasts for the various stations along each line alternative and assembled this information in a decision making matrix for VIA’s use in final selection. This economic impact analysis was based on the desirability and market potential of each line alternative and associated transit-oriented development potential over a 30 year period at each station area.
