Multi-modal Travel | Transit Oriented Developments | Autonomous Vehicles
Multi-modal planning is trending in the United States. Many developments are considering how to coordinate developments around bus routes, train stations, share-rides, bicycle trails, pedestrian walkways, residential and mix-use.  While multi-modal developments have been part of the planning culture in other countries for over 25 years, large quantity of available land in the United States have not demanded the same approach. However, with the trends in commuting and  development planning, there are changes in parking demand, first and last mile planning, technological advancements, and overall master planning.

LVR International provides consulting services in master planning, strategic planning, multi-modal planning for mixed-use, transit-oreinted-development, and  airport parking to determine current condition, expansion planning and adjustments related to shuttle buses, shared-car, and autonomous vehicles.  We provide overall parking demand analysis, shared scenario calculation for current and future planning. LVR also provides on-site parking operations review, feasibility studies, revenue control and enhancement analysis, parking equipment analysis, innovative revenue control and generation planning, and amenities analysis for transit-oriented developments and airports.

LVR planners have extensive years of hands-on operations, planning and international experience, incorporating innovative solutions to parking, public outreach and TOD planning.
