Workshop: Designing Streets and Signals for Transit

Many transportation agencies are challenged to improve transit oriented corridors with often competing demands and numerous constraints. This workshop examines several common challenges encountered in the modern design of improvement projects. The panel discussion preceding the workshop will provide overviews about key elements associated with creating a successful transit corridor. This workshop will build on the panel discussion by using a case study noting some of the design and operational considerations of the facility. In this workshop, participants will form breakout groups to tackle the case study and apply some of the important transit oriented design principles presented earlier in planning and designing an improved corridor. A key aspect will be sharing information while adding practical experiences about the “art” of what it takes to apply sound and practical solutions within real project parameters. The workshop will conclude with a common session during which each group will discuss their design approach, and identify research needs and opportunities to help address the needs and gaps shared in the group setting.
