This webinar was co-hosted by the Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) and the U.S. Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
This past month the U.S. Federal Transit Administration has released a new manual that suggests improvements for pedestrians’ and bicyclists’ access to transit. Specifically, this manual includes information on evaluating, planning, and implementing improvements to pedestrian and bicycle access to transit. It also explains how to integrate bike sharing with transit and make both options more accessible.
This manual (click here to download this manual) was prepared by TREC - the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University. Join Nathan McNeil and Edwin Adilson Rodriguez in diving deeper into the three case studies covered in this manual - discussing their innovative approaches in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
- Gain an understanding of key concepts and needs for ensuring that walking and bicycling to transit is an easy, comfortable and safe option for transit riders.
- Develop the knowledge of existing key resources to consult for going into greater depth on specific issues and challenges associated with improving walking and biking to transit.
- Learn key lessons from cities around the country working to improve walking and bicycling connections to transit.
