Carmen Correa is an urban planner and seasoned project manager with 15+ years of specialized experience in transportation consultancy. Before she moved to Sacramento in 2011, she managed a varied portfolio of transport related projects including advisory to PPP consortiums, toll road and transit feasibility studies, non-motorized modes of transport, parking and traffic studies, traffic data collection, EIS/EA, new technologies, master plans and public policy analysis. As recipient of the UPR-MIT-Tren Urbano Technology Transfer Scholarship, Carmen completed her Master Thesis, Strategies for the Physical Integration of the Acuaexpreso Terminal & the Hato Rey Tren Urbano Station, a transit station area plan aimed to increase ridership and affect the urban space by improving pedestrian access to a ferry terminal and train station proposed at the time.
An avid traveler, figuring out how to move around in a different city has always been exciting to Carmen and has fueled her passion for transportation and city planning from an early age. Carmen joined the WALKSacramento team as a volunteer in July, where she is supporting Complete Streets policy analysis and Safe Routes to School projects.
