Kamala Parks

Senior Planner

Klp Kamala Parks has over eight years of experience and abilities in transportation planning and engineering for all modes of travel. Her primary work interests are focused on pedestrian, bicyclist, and transit travel. By extension, these interests have included work on safety, travel demand management, and multimodal analysis tools. She conducted research for the multimodal level of service, a new analysis method that was incorporated into the 2010 Highway Capacity Manual, and was one of the first practitioners to apply the methodology to projects. She serves as a Pedestrian Safety Assessment evaluator, providing engineering and planning solutions to improve pedestrian access to multiple cities and counties in California. She has expertise with Synchro, Traffix, ArcView GIS, and CompleteStreetsLOS. She was the San Francisco Bay Area Section President in 2011-2012 for the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and an avid user of the bicycle for transportation purposes. Before joining KAI, she worked for the University of California Transportation Center (UCTC) as a researcher and for the Office of Transportation at the City of Berkeley, where she interned for traffic engineering and was the interim Bicycle and Pedestrian Planner.
