Ralph uses his deep technical knowledge to show stakeholders how smart transportation decisions can create the vibrant, functional places people want. In 20 years, he’s built a strong record of devising sophisticated solutions to complex mobility needs that win community and agency support. Most recently, he’s played leadership roles in creating a mobility framework for redevelopment of the 135-acre Ford site in St. Paul; completing a parking and mobility plan for downtown Savannah; and creating the Connect Columbus Citywide Plan in Ohio. He’s currently at work on implementing several bus rapid transit (BRT) pilots in Greater Boston and a high-capacity transit plan for the Las Vegas region. He’s well known in Boston for development plans (Union Square, 105 West First Street), transit plans (the state’s Focus40 program), and as an advisor to several foundations on issues of urban mobility.
Outside work, he attends many of the plays, games, and meets of his three teenage children, or can be found at home entertaining an eclectic group of family and friends.
