Founded in 1985, Sharon Greene + Associates (SGA) has achieved a national reputation over the last 20 years for providing strategic transportation economics, infrastructure finance, and transportation planning consulting services. The firm has led projects and managed programs in public transit, intercity and commuter rail, highways and toll facilities, and goods movement. SGA has extensive experience in addressing the financial and economic elements associated with transportation projects. These elements include analysis of traditional federal, state, regional and local grant programs as well as incorporating funding from private sources such as value capture programs and public-private partnerships, and development of interagency cost-allocation programs. The firm is often called upon by public sector clients to recommend traditional and innovative strategies for implementing projects – from small scale transit-oriented development to major urban and intercity transit projects, highway networks, and goods movement improvements.
Over the last several years, Sharon Greene + Associates has been at the forefront of the emerging focus on innovative project delivery. In both the transit and highway fields, the firm has been involved in some of the nation’s most interesting and inventive programs, many involving completely new approaches to sharing risk and creating partnerships between public agencies and the private sector.
SGA is a certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) in several states. The firm has offices located in Laguna Beach, California and Denver, Colorado.
