The CTLS Logo

The CTLS logo incorporates a modified catenary curve as a central component. The catenary can be found everywhere, it is the curve that describes the shape a cable or chain makes when it is supported at both ends. It is an important feature of many civil and infrastructure engineering projects across the globe. “Catenary” is also a term used to describe the overhead electrical system used to power light rail and streetcar systems around the world. Our integrated, multi-modal approach to transportation systems solutions is well-represented by this deceptively simple curve.
