Decision Lens, a leading provider of desktop and Web-based decision support software for enterprise resource allocation and planning, has been selected by Utah Transit Authority (UTA) and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (SCVTA) for the prioritization of capital planning  assets. 

UTA operates a public transportation system throughout the north-central part of Utah connecting a chain of cities and towns inhabited by approximately 80 percent of the state’s population.  The Transit Authority operates fixed route buses, express buses, ski buses, three light rail lines, and a commuter rail line. With Decision Lens software and services, UTA will be able to enhance collaboration between the leadership and stakeholders resulting in greater efficiency for every major decision around the allocation of assets. 

SCVTA is responsible for public transit services, congestion management, highway improvement projects, and countywide transportation planning in Santa Clara County, CA. Their portfolio includes light rail, buses, vintage trolleys, para-transit, and roads. Like our other transportation customers, SCVTA will be leveraging Decision Lens to help them better prioritize and allocate a budget of $375M to those investments that best serve their customers’ needs.

Mass transit use has climbed steadily over recent years; in 2009 the American Public Transportation Association reported the highest increase in use in 52 years.

“Public transit is among the most common interactions community members have with their local government,” said Decision Lens CEO John Saaty. “Maintaining the best possible service is critical, especially as economic conditions prompt greater ridership. Decision Lens is pleased to make investment decisions easier for this important part of America’s infrastructure.”

Other Decision Lens transportation clients include Maryland Transit Administration, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (DOT), Minnesota DOT, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), among others.

Decision Lens software is used widely throughout the federal government and across the Intelligence Community, with clients in the US Navy, the Joint Staff and CENTCOM.The company also serves numerous well-known national and international commercial clients including Petrobras, Johnson and Johnson, Pfizer, Corporate Executive Board, and the NFL, among other organizations.
