WHO WE ARE

Green DOT Transportation Solutions was started to fill a niche role in transportation planning services. Our goal is to improve transportation facilities and the associated human travel experience by working with local and regional agencies to improve project development and project delivery. The Green DOT team has extensive experience planning, programming and monitoring transportation projects and navigating the complex federal and state processes. We work with the built, natural, and human environments to develop effective transportation plans and programs that ultimately create safe, efficient, and progressive transportation solutions. We are strategically located in Chico providing services to public agencies throughout northern California. Green DOT is a California Corporation and registered small business.
