An Overview of ITE's Micromobility Facility Design Practitioners Guide

When: Wednesday, October 20, 2021 -- 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET

Webinar Description:

This webinar will provide highlights on ITE's Micromobility Facility Design Practitioners Guide released in April 2021. If you have not heard of this ITE publication, be sure to attend this informational webinar to learn more.

The 1-hour webinar will cover background on why the ITE Pedestrian and Bicycle Standing Committee developed this product, what the Guide includes, and next steps for micromobility facility design in the transportation profession. A little bit about the Guide:

"Micromobility vehicles have proliferated in both large cities and small towns, utilizing existing right-of-way and transportation infrastructure that was not explicitly designed with these micromobility vehicles in mind. Micromobility has provided a far more efficient way of traveling short distances than vehicles and has transformed how people move around cities and suburban areas. The launch of micromobility has exposed significant new challenges that must be addressed through policy, planning, design, and maintenance. Several potential design solutions are identified to mitigate challenges for micromobility vehicles that can be applied across a broad spectrum of locations and contexts."
