Rail & Mass Transit

According to the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, commuters in the U.S. spend approximately 42 hours per year in traffic. That number jumps to 63 hours per year for drivers in our nation’s 15 largest metropolitan areas. For many, public transportation, including commuter trains, light rail transit, subway systems and buses, provides an efficient and affordable alternative. And, as more and more agencies across the nation seek to reduce their carbon footprints through fleet electrification, public transportation is also and eco-friendly solution that minimizes air and noise pollution. It also benefits individuals, communities and the local economy by reducing congestion and commute times, revitalizing city centers, promoting tourism, creating jobs and increasing connections and inclusivity between urban and suburban areas. As experts in delivering rail and mass transit construction projects with each of these attributes, Vanir brings a unique combination of industry-specific services, hand-on experience and local and national expertise. We also know how to work with and around active rail lines and intermodal terminals and yards – ensuring a safe environment for workers, commuters the general public.

Our experience covers metro, rapid transit, freight and heavy haul, light rail, fleet electrification, intermodal transport and more. We look forward to using this experience to help bring your rail or mass transit project to life.
