Case Studies on Curbside Management from San Francisco, Toronto and Washington, DC

When: Wednesday, April 15,  2020, 1:00 - 2:30 PM ET

Developed by the ITE Complete Streets Council

Webinar Description:

As a follow-up to ITE's Curbside Management Practitioner's Guide, this webinar will check in with the cities original profiled in late 2018, San Francisco, CA, USA, Toronto, ON, Canada, and Washington, DC, USA, to update transportation professionals on their continued initiatives in curbside management. The cities will highlight how they have proactively addressed curbside management in planning, as well as reacting to curbside management demands in transportation operations. This webinar will outline how their long range plans are moving forward and they are making progress on managing valuable curb space as more modes and technologies are hitting our streets since the 3 case studies were published. This webinar will feature how these cities are allocating, managing and innovating curbside management practices in the realm of carsharing, ridehailing, taxi service, bikesharing, share micromobility, transit transfers, parking, commercial loading, and vending trucks all compete for curb space. The webinar will include elements of how curbside and complete streets interact and how transportation professionals make design decisions based on data and use of the curb, from removing parking to create protected bike lanes to making shared loading zone areas near developments to respond to delivery demands.

The presentations in this webinar will discuss successes and challenges in the area of curbside management from cities that have specifically focused on managing the curb.
