Multi-Modal Transportation Planning & Design

What does it take to engineer transportation design that is equally safe for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians? A Village! 

Trans Associates has spent more than 25 years assisting communities and institutions with multi-modal transportation planning and design.  Since our firm has a foundation in engineering, we add unique value in the planning of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Our engineering perspective allows us to technically analyze all modes of transportation within the broader context of the environment.  We study the individual modes of transportation alone, and just as importantly, relative to other forms of transportation.  We can provide the analysis to recommend specific routes that will promote safety and be acceptable to the local DOT for all modes of transportation.

We provide transportation planning services to communities and institutions such as educational and healthcare campuses. Our services include public charrettes and visioning workshops, coordination with stakeholders, scoping services, studies, and the engineering and design of pathways and bicycle facilities. 

Our engineering experience provides the basis for understanding the full scope of work tasks involved with a project design, including drainage and environmental concerns. Unforseen scope items such as environmental permitting can add cost and lead to extended delays.  These delays can jeopardize funding expiration dates and the project as a whole.

Speaking of funding, there are many sources available – give us a call today, before you travel too far down the planning path!
