Tom has more than 15 years experience working with large cities, towns, colleges, and medical campuses. He specializes in transportation demand management (TDM), including innovative solutions for daily commuting to areas underserved by public transit. He has successfully built consensus among diverse stakeholders for multimodal plans including new bike lanes, traffic signalization, and pedestrian and safety improvements. He works closely with partners in transit agencies and state DOTs on commuter rail and bus transit.
An expert in campus planning, Tom has developed TDM plans for academic campuses, including Tufts and Boston University, and private and corporate campuses such as Santander Bank, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, and Partners HealthCare. He also has extensive experience in permitting and environmental studies, from the MGM Casino in Springfield, Massachusetts to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York. In Boston’s Longwood Medical and Academic Area, Tom implemented the district’s first bike lanes, secured $2.5 million for the redesign of Ruggles Station (which received a $20 million TIGER grant for full reconstruction), and successfully advocated for a rebuilt Yawkey commuter rail station to serve demand in the rapidly growing neighborhood near Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox.
