Point of View

Supporting reliable and efficient transit solutions.

Multimodal transportation systems are the lifeblood of a thriving metropolitan area. Behind-the-scenes systems for bridges, buses, light rail, trains, and Puget Sound’s busy ferry service bring these workhorse structures and facilities to life. Meeting our region’s rapidly growing transit infrastructure needs requires diverse engineering expertise. Teamwork and collaboration yield the truly integrated transit solutions that bring communities closer together.
