A successful transportation system is cost-efficient, meets the unique needs of the societies and individuals it serves, and maintains the integrity and diversity of the natural environment. At Bonton Associates, our goal is to be a leader — in both thought and action — that helps our solve our region’s transportation infrastructure challenges.
For public transportation infrastructure:
Our transportation team brings diverse backgrounds and experiences together, empowered by data and technology, and innovation. Together, we help clients find an effective balance between meeting the needs of the transportation system and benefiting the economy, social community and environment.
More today than ever before, transportation must accommodate the needs of multiple user groups and more thoughtfully consider the communities where people live, work and play. The “complete streets” approach to urban design and planning creates streets for everyone — designed to be safe, efficient and accessible for all users, whether you’re driving, walking, biking, riding public transit or using an assistive device.
Planned and designed in the context of each community’s natural and built environment, complete streets place high value on equity and sustainability. This approach allows us to consider stormwater runoff generated by a roadway, for example, as a potential resource to be harnessed for the net benefit of the environment. Working together, our transportation and water engineering teams can help engineer the way forward.
