Transit plans are transformational in the communities they serve—whether a complete system redesign, improvements to existing service, or new routes to serve growing or changing areas.

We have the expertise and experience to lead and support our clients from conception of a transit vision or plan all the way through implementation. Our transit planning portfolio spans diverse contexts and scales, serving clients ranging from large, urban-serving transit agencies to small rural transit systems, university-focused services, and regional and county transit agencies. Our plans cover analysis and planning for everything from a single bus line, to system-wide Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA) and Transit Development Plans, to complete system redesigns that take the agency from plan conceptions through operational realities.

Many of our key staff are former transit agency employees, allowing us to cover a range of service areas through deep technical expertise along with an understanding of how transit operates. Our approach employs a collaborative model, involving the client, stakeholders, and the community at all phases of the process. Using our proprietary Transit Propensity Index, arguably the most comprehensive in the industry, we combine quantitative data from advanced technologies and traditional sources with origin-destination and travel flow data to get a complete picture of the areas that need service. Additionally, we collect and use substantive amounts of qualitative feedback in order to verify the quantitative results and to fully understand the public’s transit stories so that we can appreciate how recommendations will impact service usage on an individual basis.

Our transit service plans are more than plans – they are implementation-ready documents and tools that enable our clients to move right into implementation.
