Transit

As society becomes increasingly urbanized and cities continue to grow, transit has become vital for maintaining urban mobility and enhancing the health and prosperity of the communities it serves. MMM understands this, and has been involved in planning, designing, and delivering transit solutions for communities for 40 years.

The MMM transit team knows that planning or designing a new transit service or piece of infrastructure is a complex undertaking. While you certainly need to know the basic design principles, you also need to understand how transit operators are organized and managed, how transit vehicles operate, how people use transit, how people move around stations, how transit facilities interact with the surrounding land use, and how transit can integrate successfully with all the other modes found in urban areas.

MMM understands all of this, and more. Our transit services and capabilities include:

  • Strategic transit planning
