As the single most experienced transit vehicle and systems consultant in North America, Hatch LTK has been actively involved in the majority of the major passenger rail projects in the United States. Our capabilities address all phases of project development – from preliminary planning to service start-up – and the full life cycle of transit assets – from start-up planning to overhaul to retirement. On merging with Hatch, our capabilities now extend to a full-service transportation and transit engineering firm with expertise in planning, design, and implementation of urban transit and fully integrated Smart Cities. Our staff offer expertise in project planning; development of designs and specifications; procurement support; design review; oversight of manufacturing, construction, and installation; testing and commissioning support; and technical support for on-going maintenance and troubleshooting activities. Our proprietary operations planning and simulation software, TrainOps, can model system-wide energy use and assist with operating plan options, route alternatives analysis and environmental impact.
