Transit Planning

Our understanding of both local context and the big picture along with our customized, data-driven solutions in transit have been instrumental to our success in serving clients to deliver world-class transit to communities.

Effective transit planning goes beyond expertise in transit alone. At Fehr & Peers, we know that access to transit and an understanding of the multimodal operating environment are as important as transit service quality and coverage. By bringing transit data to life, we complement our underlying knowledge on what makes great transit tick. Using our innovative tools, we help our clients craft transit investments and policies that allow communities to thrive and operating agencies to prosper in a dynamically changing world. Successful transit planning and design also relies on strategic responses to markets – both existing and emerging – to anticipate how changing trends, mobility options, and demographics will shape future context. Through our Next Generation Transit practice, our experts are on the cutting edge of integrating new and emerging forms of mobility (such as microtransit) into existing and future transit networks.

We understand the value of inclusion and integration.

We understand that for solutions to be equitable, the planning process needs input and direction from across a broad diversity of constituents, and we recognize the critical effect of customizing transit projects to ensure they not only address agency operating and planning objectives, but that they truly serve the people that need them and improve efficiency and quality of life. Therefore, we consider the full range of agency needs, user groups, and modes in our transit planning to ensure successful integration and operations alongside other local and regional transportation options.

We bring local knowledge and expertise.

Our philosophy of focusing on improving our local communities rather than at the national scale means we work deeply with a broad range of local clients, and bring an unparalleled sensitivity for community values and conditions to our transit work. Successful transit responds to local needs and concerns, so our plans and designs keep this local perspective at the forefront, creating projects that are both technically successful and accepted by the community.

We leverage innovative technology for data-based, concrete solutions.

Our use of rigorous planning methods, tools, and data enables us to create high-performing, future-oriented transit that supports the ability of all community members to access services and jobs in their neighborhoods and beyond. We ensure custom, data-backed solutions by applying our in-house tools (such as Reliability+ and Ridership+) in combination with other processes.
