With an increased demand for curbside space—for parking, loading, deliveries, turn pockets, and other uses—cities across North America are recognizing the value of their curbsides as ﬂexible zones that can vary along a corridor or throughout the day to accommodate a variety of needs.
The increase in for-hire vehicle pick-ups and drop-offs in particular has dramatically increased demand for curbside loading zones in some areas. Curbsides become especially congested and hotly contested in vibrant areas near bars, restaurants, and clubs; near sports venues; or along other high-demand corridors.
Leading cities like Washington D.C. and San Francisco are finding ways to manage curbs to avoid compounding congestion. Hear from experts in these cities about how they have begun using flexible curbsides to make dedicated room for for-hire-vehicles where and when demand is highest.
