Seattle Internship Alert: Nelson\Nygaard – Intern – Public Transit Planning

Intern – Public Transit Planning 
(Full-Time)

Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates is seeking a highly organized, independent, and motivated intern for its Seattle office primarily to support the firm’s practice in public transit service planning. This is an outstanding opportunity for the right person to become involved in Nelson\Nygaard’s transit planning practice, which complements the firm’s activities in other areas including paratransit and community-based transportation, multimodal transportation, non-motorized transportation, transportation demand management, smart parking management, and climate action and CO2 reduction. While this internship may include some work in these other areas, prospective applicants should note that this position will primarily focus on transit service planning projects, which include route and operations planning, corridor studies, and improving ridership and productivity of transit systems. A strong interest in public transit systems as well as some background in transit planning are key components to succeeding in this position.

Responsibilities  

Intern responsibilities will depend on the specific needs of transit service planning projects that are being undertaken but will likely include research, data collection and route performance analysis, mapping, editing reports, support/field work, and possibly some business development tasks. Interns must be available to travel for project work and may be required to work outside of normal business hours.

Qualifications

The ideal candidate will have completed a BA/BS in Urban or Transportation Planning or a related field.

Advanced knowledge of MS Excel and ArcGIS is required. Knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is recommended. Solid writing skills are also a must.

Above all, we are looking for someone who has a passion for public transit, and is interested in making transit better for our clients and their constituents.

About This Position

This paid position provides an opportunity to join Nelson\Nygaard for 6-12 months with the possibility of transitioning to a permanent Associate position depending on compatibility and workloads. The position is full time (40 hour week), but we may accommodate a part-time schedule for the right candidate. The hourly pay range for this position is $18-20 depending on experience.

How to Apply

Prior to sending your materials, please combine cover letter and resume into a single PDF with the filename format “Firstname Lastname – Seattle Transit Intern.pdf”. Please send materials to jobs@nelsonnygaard.com with the subject line “Seattle Transit Intern Position.”

Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
