Designing for the Future TRANSIT Best Viewed Horizontally Best Viewed Horizontally

    Transit is a Two-Way Street

    Good, affordable, reliable, transit is something that every city needs, and providing mobility to those who are transit-dependent is a necessity.  Like our highways and streetscapes, transit facilities (lines, shops, stations, etc.) need to fit into the surrounding fabric of our communities and the network of infrastructure.  It should not be second tier and should not take a back seat to any of the other modes of mobility.

    In Vogue

    Many of our cities and communities have had public transit in dedicated modes, streetcar or trolley, at one point in time or another.  This fell out of vogue at the introduction of the automobile whereas cars, trucks and buses soon took over the streets, and away went the rail.  In many areas rail is now returning, and the paradigm shift from driving automobiles to riding a convenient commuter rail service requires comprehensive thought, community outreach and coordination.

    Moving People

    When rail is not the answer, we must rethink how we move people, whether by City or regional bus, vans, commuter bus, connecting services, or ride-shares.  How we engage ridership, and how we make transit desirable will help achieve a successful system.  Our approach to transit is all encompassing, from arrival (how does one get there?) to the experience of waiting, to the experience of the corridor and how well it connects to other modes of mobility for seamless, accessible movement.
