URS has worked with major railroad companies, transit authorities, and federal and state transportation agencies since the early 1900s.

We provide the full scope of resources required to turn a conceptual design into a functioning system, including planning, environmental management, engineering design, construction, program and construction management, and operations and maintenance. We also offer specialized expertise in vehicle rehabilitation, signal control, and communication systems. Our experience comprises all forms of light, heavy, and freight railroad systems; subway systems; and bus rapid transit (BRT) systems and streetcars.

URS has a strong track record in providing engineering and construction services for multi-year, multi-million-dollar projects for major transit agencies, and we have consistently ranked among the top design-build firms and heavy civil contractors for mass transit and rail projects.

Among our signature assignments is the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit project—the first design-build-operate-maintain transit project in the United States. We continue to provide operations and maintenance services for that system under a 20-year contract.
