57th St. & Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh (of UPMC) Parking Lot

When large employers move locations, parking can become a challenge.  Trans Associates specializes in parking consulting and assists clients with optimizing existing lots and prioritizing categories of parkers.  When parking space runs out onsite, we assist with developing other options.  For UPMC’s Children’s Hospital, that meant the development of an off-site lot in nearby Lawrenceville to create a park and ride program for 1450 employees.  The access roadway was completely reconstructed along with other design improvements required to open the facility.
