Transit these days operates on land, air, and sea. SCJ delivers a variety of transit design services for bus systems and their maintenance facilities, automated people movers, and even aerial alternatives (think gondolas). Our planning work includes route and facilities alternatives analyses, environmental documentation, permitting, communication with property owners and jurisdictional stakeholders, funding strategies, and construction administration. Let our team planning and design teams use their expertise to help move your project efficiently through the approval process.
Cable-Propelled Transit: Aerial & Ground
Ropeway transportation systems – like ski lift gondolas in Steamboat Springs, CO and the Roosevelt Island Tramway in New York City – are some of our higher profile projects. This technology moves people in motor-less, engine-less vehicles that are propelled by a steel cable, commonly called a ropeway. Whether you’re looking for expert advice during planning, design and procurement of a new ropeway system — or maybe your existing aerial system needs inspection, modification or repair — we’ve got you covered.
Trails, Bike Lanes, Sidewalks
Trail design is an art, and it begins at the planning stage as connections, alignment and desired aesthetic qualities are identified. Our team brings together engineering design, GIS analysis, landscape architecture and urban planning for solutions that are creative and constructable.
