Donjek Transportation Consulting
Donjek is rolling out with transportation planning and policy service, so to speak. Look to us to conduct travel demand projections and management analysis, evaluate streetcar finance, negotiate shared parking agreements, and determine whether to use tax increment financing for streets and structured parking. We identify and present solutions in these areas on behalf of our public- and private-sector clients. We are able to:
- Work with mid-size and large employers to reduce payroll taxes and parking lease charges. We are able to analyze employee travel and parking requirements, to help employers identify and manage these costs, using travel demand management plans and other measures.
- Form urban and suburban transportation site plans to cultivate the vital places in your city.
- Develop shared parking arrangements and parking management plans that ensure efficient access and circulation.
- Prepare traffic impact studies to determine the effect of development on congestion, safety, and parking supply.

Getting Less Mileage Out of the Gas Tax

It also explores the increasing folly of levying gas tax as a dollar value per gallon, while inflation mixed with reduced fuel consumption by consumers is leading to deterioration of revenues and resources available for investment in transportation infrastructure. Talk about a volatile mixture!
