Transportation and Mobility

Transportation and mobility are more than the movement of people, goods, and services; they are an expression of a society and a measure of community health and prosperity. Efficient travel promotes economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and personal health and safety. LSA has been part of the mobility solution for more than 45 years. The firm is a recognized innovator in critical mobility strategies and traffic-engineering design solutions. LSA has designed elements of the regional highway system to promote commuter travel and goods movement and has been part of teams providing solutions at ports, terminals, and airports throughout California. LSA has also provided creative mobility solutions to various communities nationwide and has supported local communities with alternative transportation planning and active transportation implementation. LSA uses its experience in transportation and land use planning to prepare Long-Range Transportation Plans, bicycle master plans, nexus studies and fee programs, parking strategies, corridor studies, and preliminary engineering services. LSA provides travel demand modeling services, which help in preparing long-range plans, General Plan circulation analysis, and Specific Plans. LSA is currently one of leading firms in California providing analysis and solutions for vehicle miles traveled (VMT) analysis, which is the new California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) metric for determining transportation impacts.
