Terra co-leads Nelson\Nygaard’s emerging mobility practice, which is committed to putting people first in a new era of transportation. This practice is rooted in our firm’s deep experience in transit planning, active transportation, parking and TDM, and paratransit and community-based transportation. As part of this work, she helped Santa Clara County develop a microtransit service, called Flex, which piloted in 2016, and helped a Bay Area transit agency formulate a ride-hailing partnership. She also works with several mobility service providers and platforms and currently leads a TCRP research project focused on public transit partnerships with ride-hailing companies.
Terra serves on the planning committee for TRB’s next conference on demand-response transportation, participates in APA’s Sharing Economy initiative, and is a frequent speaker on emerging mobility topics.
