ITE South Alberta Section Webinar: Urban Goods Movement – Curbside Management

Tuesday, July 27, 2021 - 12 PM to 1 PM , Calgary Time

Over the last decade, three initiatives have been simultaneously evolving on urban streets:

  • widespread implementation of Complete Streets improvements to better accommodate bicycle, pedestrian, and public transit uses;
  • rapid growth of on-demand passenger transportation services; and
  • rapid growth in e-commerce, including on-demand deliveries.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for both green transportation options and direct-to-home deliveries have accelerated. In addition, with the increase in demand for urban deliveries, the last mile challenge often become a 50 feet challenge, where commercial vehicles compete with other curb users for available parking.

How do we accommodate increasingly complex uses of street and curb space while minimizing multi-modal interactions?

How do we invest in technologies to monitor, allocate and regulate curb space, and to increase the visibility of the curb?

Join us and learn about initiatives on curbside management from this distinguished panel from across the United States.
