El Paso TOD Planning

Charlier Associates, Inc. was the lead transportation subconsultant on a multi-disciplinary team led by Dover, Kohl & Partners (DKP) to develop several integrated plans for the City of El Paso, Texas.

El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, form the United States’ largest bi-national metropolis, with a combined population of 2.5 million. El Paso is aggressively implementing several innovative transportation and land use initiatives. These include building a four-line Rapid Transit (BRT) System connecting TOD-based satellite transfer centers to downtown and planning for the long-term redevelopment of the closed ASARCO smelter, the region’s largest remaining infill opportunity. Concurrently, the City is also proactively revitalizing its downtown core, in part through planning for re-introduction of streetcar service to complement the RTS and TOD.

Since early 2010, CAI has been providing innovative multimodal transportation planning and design expertise to the DKP team and City staff to prepare SmartCode-based TOD and corridor redevelopment plans for three RTS transfer centers and ASARCO redevelopment (both projects combined as Connecting El Paso) and a citywide Comprehensive Plan (Plan El Paso). We also directly assisted City staff in preparing five FTA transit grant applictions and a TIGER III grant application to help implement these plans and projects. Our work has included:

Connecting El Paso was adopted unanimously by City Council in January 2011. Plan El Paso was adopted unanimously by City Council in March 2012.
