The most important part of everything we do
Transpo's Multimodal Safety Mission
We take pride in creating safe, accessible, and innovative transportation solutions to help people thrive in the communities we serve. We use quality data, in-depth analysis, and the latest technology to develop creative, practical solutions that address urgent safety needs.
We are Roadway Safety Professionals
Transpo recognizes the importance of roadway safety as a unique discipline within our larger practice. Our team of credentialed safety experts have earned the distinguished Roadway Safety Professional (RSP) designation through the Transportation Professional Certification Board (TPCB).
The RSP certification demonstrates our commitment to going above and beyond the traditional engineering approach to safety.
Achieving Vision Zero
We believe in the goals of the Vision Zero and Target Zero programs: the development and implementation of real, practical solutions to reduce all transportation-related injuries or fatalities in the United States down to zero. At Transpo we know achieving this lofty goal for a safer transportation system means always thinking about what's most important in the projects we take on.
Funding Vision Zero
As part of our safety practice Transpo have helped our clients secure over $8 million in funding for safety improvement projects identified through our comprehensive safety planning process.

Local Road Safety Plans
Since 2018 Transpo's team has authored and updated 10+ Local Road Safety Plans, responsible for contributing four million dollars in awarded funding through the Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT) Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).
