Multimodal transportation planning and design are about more than providing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure — they are about building safe, efficient, and attractive transportation networks for users of all ages and physical abilities. From promoting health and fitness to reducing traffic congestion and environmental impact, multimodal transportation is vital to community well-being and sustainability.
Focusing on Complete Street concepts, ADA compliance, and user comfort, we create active transportation networks that encourage and support equitable mobility. We also encourage wide sidewalks, safe bike lanes, and attractive streetscapes that can be integrated with the motorized transportation network to create an easy-to-navigate system for all users.
After assessing your current infrastructure, our team will analyze existing and future land use and traffic operations, identify areas for improvement, and create strategic solutions for multimodal accommodations. Through careful planning and community engagement, facilities for bicyclists, pedestrians, and individuals with mobility challenges can be safely and effectively implemented.
Whether extending a neighborhood sidewalk or building an entirely new trail system, our team can help determine the most efficient route and select the appropriate facility alignment to help streamline your community’s non-motorized travel network.
Safety is the number one concern when several types of transportation converge at an intersection. Utilizing years of experience, our team can provide safe and efficient intersection designs that are intuitive for users to confidently navigate.
Having planned and designed over 400 miles of trails and side paths, our multi-modal experts have developed a keen insight into how trails and side paths complement on-street accommodations to provide unique walking and cycling experiences.

Our team will also identify wayfinding needs and develop signage systems to create a user-friendly navigation experience. Signs may include network maps, destination or distance signs, and estimated travel time placards that not only inform but also encourage extended biking or walking trips.
Destination facilities are an essential element of multimodal transportation networks. Our bicycle parking design services target locations that are close to building entrances, in high visibility areas, and protected from the weather. The bike racks we use range from simple and functional to creative and unique without sacrificing bike support and fail-safe security.
