Charlotte Transportation Demand Management (TDM) and Shared Mobility Planning
As one of the fastest growing cities in the country, Charlotte is beginning to make use of TDM strategies to manage growth and traffic.
Our TDM team plans, creates, promotes, and evaluates convenient alternatives to driving, to get cars off the road and/or out of your garage, to create work-life balance, and to reduce stress. We do so by changing travel behavior, particularly at peak commute hours. Our TDM project work helps increase density and reduce parking construction costs while fostering transit-oriented development, complete streets, walkable activity centers, livability and sustainability initiatives.
Parking Design and Studies
We analyze, design, and modernize parking facilities not simply because they are integral parts of the entire transportation ecosystem, but because they are crucial to creating better office, residential, commercial, educational, and healthcare experiences. Our work ranges from parking systems that are still a concept on paper to facilities that have outlived their usefulness and need modernization.

Our traffic design team works with a focus on Complete Street design principles. With extensive project experience across the United States, our engineers and designers have experience across the full range of traffic design, including:
- traffic signal warrant studies
- design of new traffic control devices
