SRF has a strong history of working with agencies, providers, and customers across the Midwest to plan and design transit services and facilities. We believe that while transit challenges are universal, solutions are always local. Transit services must be able to respond to changing demands, demographic trends, advances in technology, increasing energy prices, and heightened awareness of environmental concerns. SRF’s transit expertise spans various transit modes including light rail transit (LRT), bus rapid transit (BRT), streetcar, fixed-route bus, and paratransit. We pride ourselves in being responsive and for working with our clients to develop workable, productive, and scalable solutions.
