Creating a successful transit center requires balancing a range of factors: parking capacity, bus access, bicycle and pedestrian safety, site location and compatibility with adjacent land use. Nelson\Nygaard has expertise in all these areas. We can help transit systems create centers that meet the needs of operators and riders.
Small Transit Centers
Nelson\Nygaard’s type, size and location studies determine the specific transit center components that will best serve the needs of transit operators and their riders. From location to number of bays, from security concerns to adequate parking, our 20-year transit center plans include service planning building on future use.
Large Transit Centers
Nelson\Nygaard’s years of experience as transportation planners add an integral component to successful large transit center design. The firm consults with architects and designers to clarify a transit center’s impact on transit and mobility for passengers and in its surrounding area. We will determine the best location and design for transit circulation and interaction; and provide strategies for multimodal accessibility and use.
