Transit Operations & Maintenance (O&M)

Increase Efficiency and Longevity of Transit Infrastructure Assets

Recent major weather events attributed to climate change, aging assets, technological advancements, and competing financial and operational priorities have heightened the need for many transit agencies to harden their assets.

Transit agencies are seeking means to ensure internal efficiencies are maximized for their operations.


Understanding these challenges, we provide our clients with a critical, experience-based perspective to reliably operating, maintaining and rehabilitating the new and existing transit systems that are vital to our communities.

We provide our clients with valuable insights into the needs, requirements, and principle operating issues relevant to successful transit systems and facilities.
