Rail Transit Systems

All Aboard the Fast Track to Success

Since 1944, Parsons has set the standard for safe, effective, and reliable rail and transit systems around the globe. Our unique expertise is the result of working on every major transit system in North America and many of the most renowned systems overseas. Along the way, we’ve developed long-term relationships with our customers as we’ve helped them achieve their strategic visions.

With exponential growth in urban centers, aging infrastructure, and the increasing cost of transportation solutions, projects can’t progress from planning to implementation fast enough. That’s why we use our market-leading experience and expertise in innovative project delivery solutions, such as the following:

  • Public-private partnerships (P3s)
  • Design-build-finance-operate-maintain (DBOFM)
  • Construction management at-risk (CMAR)

These delivery and procurement solutions accelerate project schedules, reduce long-term costs, and produce turnkey projects that meet the needs of today by anticipating the needs of tomorrow.

Leading the Way in Advanced Train Control Systems

Demand for efficient and safe transit is at an all-time high, and intermodal connections are essential to improved mobility. We’re the recognized leader in communications-based train control (CBTC) in the United States, employing a unique systems-integration approach that leverages new and advanced CBTC and positive train control (PTC) technology to deliver scalable solutions for improved safety, operations, and reliability—all while ensuring minimal impacts to existing systems.
