Transportation issues are central in the lives of most Southern Californians and will continue to be critical in defining the future mobility, prosperity, livability and sustainability of our region.
Compass Blueprint helps cities and stakeholders consider mobility (how easy it is to travel a certain distance) and accessibility (what destinations one can reach with a trip of a certain duration) in their communities and how their communities connect to the larger region.
Compass Transportation and Parking services will be customized to address the issues unique to each partner community and might include assistance with:
As the region's public transit network matures, we can help you determine appropriate alignments and rolling stock for local circulator services and connections to the larger region. Compass Blueprint transit planning projects often involve partners from multiple jurisdictions.
Transportation & "4D" modeling
SCAG has developed one of the most sophisticated travel demand models in the nation and, through the Compass Blueprint team of consultants, has access to the full array of transportation modeling tools including cutting-edge "4-D" analysis that can account for the local-scale effects of mixed use, pedestrian-friendly urban design in reducing the number and length of vehicle trips.
Parking studies & strategies
Parking may be second only to traffic as a controversial issue in local planning. Compass Blueprint can assist cities in evaluating parking supply and demand and can recommend innovative parking strategies. Shared parking, "park-once" districts, revenue generation potential and the role of parking in defining the character of neighborhoods have all been explored in Compass Blueprint Demonstration Projects.
Bicycle & pedestrian planning
Livable and sustainable communities allow and encourage people to get around on foot or by bicycle. Many cities in Southern California, despite our long love affair with the automobile, are emerging as places where destinations can be accessed quickly and easily and without a motor vehicle. Compass Blueprint can help with the infrastructure and programs to make this happen in your city.
