Making the Journey Better

At Sam Schwartz, making the journey better guides everything we do.  
Making the journey better means making our transit systems more equitable, our streets safer, our infrastructure more resilient, and our development sustainable. It means making transportation choices easy to understand and minimizing the disruption of construction. It means setting the vision for the way we move and developing the strategies to make it happen. 

Making the journey better starts with an intelligent conversation. For our clients, this means engaging with teams of planning and engineering professionals who are trained to listen, understand, and analyze, and who have the expertise to transform challenges into transformational results. For the communities we serve, this means thoughtful engagement about their priorities, perspectives, and where they want to go. For our staff, this means pursuing continued learning and growth.  Ready to join us? Let’s make the journey better, together.
