TRANSIT BROCHURE

PROVIDING BUS TRANSIT ACCESSIBILITY
AND MOBILITY SOLUTIONS

Transit planning, analysis and design go hand-in-hand with traffic engineering at McMahon in urban, suburban and rural environments. We are committed to buses as a transportation mode and have developed a unique bus transit practice with a focus on planning and design to enhance the efficiency and reliability of bus operations, as well as the passenger experience. We actively look past the bus stop or station to incorporate holistic connections for users of all modes — pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and drivers for a full Complete Street approach that fully embraces, and plans for, all modes of transportation.

McMahon provides a diverse range of transit planning and design services to metropolitan and regional transit agencies, municipalities, state DOTs, public agencies and Transportation Management Associations focused on improving transit and access for all citizens within their local communities, as well as private developers.

At McMahon bus transit is a priority, not an afterthought. As multimodal transportation planners and engineers, we understand that bus transit shares the road with other transportation modes. Our team provides solutions that serve the needs of bus passengers, as well as address local concerns about traffic, bikes and pedestrians.

 

McMahon’s transit-savvy traffic engineers incorporate an in-depth understanding of traffic and signal operations, pedestrian and bicycle accommodations, safety and parking utilization in the development of on-road bus infrastructure improvements. We give buses and bus riders the focus they deserve, and for every project we incorporate each location’s individuality — its requirements, aesthetics and even its quirks. One size doesn’t fit all.
