Rail and Transit Planning

Michael Baker is an industry leader in rail and transit services. We understand the intricacies of moving people and goods safely and efficiently. With completed projects across the country, our expertise encompasses everything from station area facility plans to design of freight rail yards. Our work has included feasibility studies, ridership forecasts and supporting our client’s studies and applications under Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) programs. Our successful development of the important modes of rail and transit transportation always includes comprehensive planning, with the end goal of implementation, as evidenced by the 40 transit and rail passenger stations our team successfully delivered on the east coast alone.
