Transportation Planning / Sustainable Mobility
 
Transportation systems play a critical role defining the character of a community. In short, transportation systems are more than just ways to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible – they establish the functional framework of the built environment. We understand that the primary challenge of planning and designing transportation systems is to align a facility’s purpose with the community’s needs. At Urbë Studio, our transportation planning practice is focused on planning for multimodal infrastructure that meets the needs of all street users, with emphasis on people that walk, bike or take transit. Our goal is always to leverage transportation infrastructure investments to support broader community goals. We take pride in helping our clients plan and design transportation facilities that strike a balance between moving people and building sustainable, livable communities.
