Dibs? Fitting in Transit Priority & Better Bikeways on Crowded, Contested Streets

Active main streets with dense destinations are key routes for both bikes and transit. Accommodating and prioritizing both modes, for networks that connect people to places, is essential to designing vibrant cities. How do you ensure space for both in our cities’ most constrained environments?

Join a hands-on design workshop to learn how the city and transit agency partners in another Canadian city—Vancouver—are solving these competing demands, and navigating the trade-offs inherent in trying to promote all ages & abilities bicycling alongside fast and reliable transit. Vancouver’s approach shows the tools to unlock space both for people bicycling and riding the bus. Then, we’ll roll up our sleeves and put these new skills to the test on local corridor, where we’ll apply design techniques in a live design charrette!
