About Socius Amica
The name of our firm (Latin for 'partner and friend') reflects our approach to the consultant-client relationship. Tapping into our passion for transit planning, we provide quality service to our clients, specializing in rural transit planning, mobility management, coordinated public-transit human service plans, transit development planning, policy development, and funding for transit projects.
A blue-ribbon consultant with over two decades of transit planning experience, founder and CEO Meredith Greene regretted having to turn down interesting and needful clients because they didn’t have large enough planning budgets to hire consulting support. Believing all agencies, transit providers, and health and human service entities should have access to quality consulting services with implementable solutions to transit and mobility challenges, Meredith established Socius Amica, a woman-owned business headquartered in Durango, Colorado, the heart of the Southwest.
