Downtown Transit Center Feasibility Study
Manning Architects served as a consultant to Parsons Brinckerhoff in a feasibility study for a possible transit center in Downtown New Orleans. The study included extensive examination of more than a dozen potential sites for the transit center. In this evaluation multiple, varying factors needed to be taken into consideration in order to meet the needs of the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) and the city's commuter population. Factors such as land ownership, level of ridership, capacity for buses, proximity to streetcar stops and local community expectations are some of the many considerations. Being able to understand and evaluate external circumstances while surpassing the owner's expectations is a distinguishing factor of Manning, not only with transportation projects but with all of the sectors we serve.
