Boeing Aircraft’s Everett complex is home to 35,000 employees. Boeing has a strong Commute Assistance Program however vehicle trips increased as production demands made ridesharing more difficult, creating significant parking problems, and causing concern for meeting environmental obligations. LLG assessed existing trip reduction programs, researched commute assistance practices at similar manufacturing sites, conducted employee surveys, and recommended a series of solutions to reduce the demand for vehicle trips to the site.
Los Angeles, CA
The Century City Chamber of Commerce retained LLG to document travel demand conditions among commuters traveling to, around and from Century City, and to develop a program of actions to be taken by stakeholders to increase practical and attractive travel. LLG documented commute-related conditions in Century City, conducting surveys among property managers, employers and nearly 40,000 employees, and recommended actions for the Chamber of Commerce to take to reduce vehicle trips at this high-density work center.
San Diego, CA
LLG was engaged by the Port of San Diego to develop a parking demand management plan for the North Embarcadero area in downtown San Diego to address concerns for providing access to an area that is expected to lose parking capacity as it undergoes significant development in coming years. LLG assessed existing parking conditions, identified potential TDM and parking management measures to improve access, assessed the applicability of measures, determined ‘order of magnitude’ costs, and recommended immediate and short term actions.
Working for the Anaheim Transportation Management Association, LLG identified locations for shuttle stops, developed guidelines for off-street transit centers, and worked with property owners and hotel operators to locate shuttle stops in the Resort District. A subsequent engagement involved examining trip generation, how shuttles served properties, creating a formula for apportioning shuttle costs to property owners, and providing advice on implications of alternative financing formulas.
