Be part of a fun tactical urbanism installation that encourages walking. Tour participants will help install temporary signage that encourages walking and shows foot-times between major Downtown Austin attractions. Tour guides and participants will discuss fresh ideas for what we, as transportation officials, can do to make walking an appealing, viable way to get around. By tour’s end, you’ll have learned a “guerilla wayfinding” technique to encourage active transportation back home.
