Founded in 1979, DKS Associates is a transportation planning and engineering firm that harnesses technology and innovation to drive the development of comprehensive, functional, and feasible solutions aimed at addressing contemporary transportation challenges. DKS specializes in the planning and design of transportation systems spanning an array of modes, including automobiles, buses, light rail, streetcars, bus rapid transit, commuter rail, freight, bicycles, pedestrians, and various forms of ground access. Their team of planners and designers employs cutting-edge methodologies to shepherd transportation projects through every stage, commencing with conceptual planning and alternative analysis, extending through environmental approvals, funding feasibility, design and construction, and culminating in testing, operations, and management.

In 2005, DKS Associates became employee-owned when they implemented an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). As an employee-owned company, each individual within DKS shares in the responsibility of steering the firm toward success. Their unwavering focus on delivering results ensures that transportation systems effectively serve all segments of the community, embracing those who walk, cycle, rely on public transit, drive, or engage in the movement of goods.
