TRANSPORTATION CONSULTING, PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT
How people get from one place to another is central to the Bay Area’s economic vitality, our environment, and our highly prized quality of life.
Helping people get from home to work… to entertainment destinations… to medical appointments… to school… and to move between various destinations throughout the day quickly, efficiently, with choices, with minimal environmental impacts, and at a reasonable cost…is a tall order. But not impossible.
California’s new legislation mandates a 7%per capita reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. During the same time, the Bay Area’s population will increase significantly. Traditional strategies such as adding to our infrastructure, new transit, using technology that increases mileage and reduces pollution, and road pricing are all necessary parts of the mix, but no single action or strategy alone will reach these goals.
What we do know is that we must decrease vehicle miles travelled (known as VMT). Without question, reducing VMT’s ultimately depends on our ability to shift individual travel perceptions and behavior. To do so, we’ll need new types of models, partnerships and collaborations that create, enhance and support a number of strategies.
Planning new developments and “retrofitting” built-environments in ways that create multi-modal environments is an exciting opportunity.
