Eamon Johnston 
Associate Planner, Transportation Management & Design, Inc.

Eamon is an Associate Planner at Transportation Management & Design, Inc. (TMD), a transit planning and consulting firm dedicated to improving public mobility for clients across the U.S. His work involves studying travel patterns, and providing detailed research and analysis of transit system performance, conducting passenger surveys, and using this information to draft service recommendations to improve the rider experience. He gets to do community outreach to gather feedback and improve transportation systems for all types of riders, making it easier for people to get around, and he also spends a lot of time making maps. Prior to TMD, he worked at the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA), where he led a broad range of planning projects focused on improving mobility for people and reducing the environmental impact of travel in a low-density region. He managed state and federal public transit grants, planned the relaunch of a free bus service to expand access to outdoor recreation, and represented the agency at meetings and multiple regional councils. Before his time at SRTA, he spent three years in Medellín, Colombia, where he taught English through the Fulbright Program at the Universidad Nacional, completed a graduate program in GIS, and worked in bicycle advocacy. He feels lucky to work in a field that is key to encouraging regional accessibility, reducing socioeconomic disparities, and mitigating the effects of climate change. Eamon is a member of BikeSD, RideSD, YIMBY Democrats of San Diego County, and Circulate San Diego, and he grew up in Mission Beach.
