Manning consulted with Parsons Brinckerhoff for a feasibility study to locate a transit center in Downtown New Orleans. Manning's expertise in the transportation sector and the New Orleans region supported the team’s ability to engage community stakeholders and quickly develop solutions responsive to the needs of the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) and the city's commuter population.

The study included a detailed examination of over a dozen potential sites for the transit center. In this evaluation, multiple factors were taken into consideration such as land ownership, level of ridership, capacity for buses, proximity to streetcar stops, and local community expectations.
