NACTO Design Guide Training
Designing Streets for Transit
Great cities need great transit systems, and great transit needs better streets.
For cities and regions to grow sustainably and foster equitable access for all residents, unlocking streets for transit is key to providing reliable and efficient movement. Join us for a one-day training workshop on street design tools and strategies to support more effective transit systems, and facilitate safe movement for all users of an urban street. Learn the state of the practice from NACTO's Transit Street Design Guide, and apply those lessons during an interactive and energizing program.
Register to join us for a one-day Designing Streets for Transit Workshop on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, to be held at J. Erik Jonsson Central Public Library in Dallas, or Wednesday, January 30, 2019, to be held at NCTCOG. The National Association of City Transportation Officials will host these Transit Guide Design Workshops.
- Transit Street Design: Transit Lanes & Transitways; and Priority at Intersections
- Transit-Supportive Systems: Stations & Stops; and Aligning with Streets
- Case Studies from cities across North America
Apply these lessons to a hands-on design charrette to a corridor in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.
