To create real mobility choices for their citizens, communities must mesh bicycling and walking with transit. This webinar explores the common ground between transit and active transportation professionals and advocates, and ways to overcome institutional challenges to cooperation. Topics covered in the presentation will include:
- The reasons to create partnerships between transit agencies and bicycle/pedestrian programs;
- Examples of effective collaboration, design guides and best practices;
- Design, operational and safety issues to consider for seamless integration of bicycling and walking with transit stations, roadway facilities and vehicles:
- At stations—Wayfinding, forecasting demand for short and long-term bicycle parking, access for pedestrians and cyclists, integration with the local street network
- On the road—Broad overview of issues around incorporating both bicycling and transit facilities in street design, as well as crosswalk policy and treatments at transit stops, pedestrian amenities at bus stops, and accessibility
- On the transit vehicle—Bicycles on the vehicle; access for people with disabilities
- Recommendations from the International Scan on Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety and Mobility
- Teaching cyclists and transit operators to share the road, including a new education program developed for Chicago that helps create a cooperative and safe environment.
