About High Street Consulting Group
At High Street, the word foresight best describes our philosophy. We want to help transportation practitioners – including policymakers, managers, budgeteers, planners, economists and engineers - better understand the significance and nature of needs or changes before they occur, so they can act prudently to identify and deploy transportation solutions that best provide for the future.
The name “High Street” (the United Kingdom’s equivalent to an American town’s Main Street) evokes the image of a common meeting place for exchange of ideas. Its etymology is rooted in the medieval English term for thoroughfares of consequence that were among the first to be paved.
