KOA’s transportation planning team balances the needs of all aspects of the transportation system in every project we undertake, applying and developing the best practices in the industry. Our planners and engineers develop ideas and solutions that work as well on paper as they do once constructed. Our solutions to planning issues incorporate mobility, urban design, and sustainability to benefit the rapidly changing world of how we live, work, play, and travel. Our goal is to plan transportation systems that promote safety and alternate forms of mobility such as pedestrian, bicycle and transit, to provide a comprehensive reduction on the impacts of motor vehicle traffic.
KOA provides transportation planning from site, to development, to corridor and citywide mobility plans. We are pioneers in active transportation, bike & pedestrian planning, and complete streets initiatives. We also provide transit planning, freight and goods movement, parking, travel demand forecasting, transportation demand management, neighborhood traffic management, safety studies, grant writing, and grant management services. KOA has played an integral role in the preparation of many environmental impact reports (EIR) and environmental impact statements (EIS) and has developed new tools and analytics in support of SB743.
At KOA, we believe that active transportation planning and engineering plays an important role in creating safer, healthier, and more equitable communities. Through our efforts in planning and design, we have developed a diverse portfolio of active transportation projects over the years, many of which have since been constructed. We have witnessed first-hand the transformative nature of active transportation projects on communities across Southern California.
KOA offers a unique approach that balances the need for a planning vision with the expertise of our engineering and design. KOA planners and engineers work closely to identify and develop projects that not only meet our clients’ needs and expectations, but are also innovative and feasible for construction. Our goal is to provide our clients with our knowledge and expertise, in order for communities to partake in more active transportation activities to improve their quality of life.
KOA is a recognized leader in active transportation planning, design, and implementation. The highlight of our legacy in active transportation lies in the planning and implementation of the very first cycle tracks, as well as the first bike boulevard in Southern California.
What is Active Transportation?
Active Transportation means sustainability for our future. It also expands our travel choices for people of all ages and abilities. By choosing active transportation, it increases mobility choices and enhances the livability of communities by reducing congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. It also improves public health by providing better and safer facilities for people on bikes and pedestrians. KOA is committed to planning, engineering, and helping communities implement active transportation projects as a means to make Southern California a better place to live and work.
