Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Micro-Mobility Network Expansion

The City of Cleveland and seven neighboring municipalities in Cuyahoga County are working to expand the region's shared micro-mobility network to increase access and improve system performance for all users. Bongorno Consulting is leading the consulting team in development of station or "hub" typologies, placement diagrams, graphic design and educational materials, cost estimating, and bid specification sheets to support implementation of network enhancements across the region.

University Circle Improvement District

University Circle, one of the most unique and vibrant square miles in the country, is managed by the non-profit University Circle Inc. (UCI), a versatile and high-performing community service corporation. UCI is examining options to expand resources through establishment of a special improvement district that will help them provide safety, transportation, and other place management services. Bongorno Consulting is supporting this effort through peer review, data & scenario analysis, and coordination with various City of Cleveland departments.

Over the past 30 years, HPT has invested more than $8 million in a variety of planning, capital improvement and landscape projects. Bongorno Consulting has served as General Consultant to the Trust since 2013 and has worked throughout 2020 to develop a 5-year Strategic Plan for parklands investments, aligning with the priorities and investment strategies of the City of Cleveland and other community partners.

2022 ACT International Conference

During the Association for Commuter Transportation's 2022 International Conference in Chicago, Chris presented on a panel with three other TMA experts on the ways that these organizations can engage with and add value for non-traditional community members. The session included a focus on retail and other service workers who do not follow a typical 9-5 schedule, hard-to-reach suburban commuters, and traffic safety programs that appeal to travelers of all modes and abilities.
