Join APBP for this exciting webinar discussion around designing transit. Andy and Lia will begin by discussing accommodating buses and bicycles together on the streets of L.A. county. Innovative strategies relating to street design and driver/rider education have recently been employed in Los Angeles County to reduce bus/bicycle conflicts and improve multimodal operations and safety. This webinar will examine the findings from a recent study of 15 shared bicycle/transit corridors and share recommendations for improving operator training and infrastructure design. Then, Sandra will discuss how pedestrian improvements at bus stops improve conditions for all pedestrians. She'll review what to do with data that is collected and how to prioritize stops for improvement, with examples from projects. Sandra will also discuss ways that active transportation projects can support transit. For example, when engineering walkways and designing ped environment, thinking about how it will transition into the bus stop area and meet ADA requirements.
