Complete streets, transit, bikeway, and pedestrian planning, design, and performance measurement
This course will orient participants within the bicycle planning discipline, familiarize them with tools and accepted practice, and connect them with essential planning, design, and policy resources.
The course covers concepts, practices, and policies employed by the most bicycle-friendly cities and useful to practitioners to transform an average city into a bike-friendly city, and is relevant to Planning, Parks & Recreation, Public Works, and Traffic Engineering departments, as well as land use and development consultants.
The course addresses best practices for preparing bicycle master plans, particularly California requirements, and introduces participants to the technical toolbox for planning and designing bicycle facilities.
Additional course detail is provided in the sections below.
Trainees will develop basic fluency in concepts and components of bicycle facility design and planning as part of the transportation network, beginning with an introduction to relevant legislation and policy.
Trainees will also develop several ways to think of bikeways in terms of components (widths, markings, signage, signals), context (urban / suburban / rural, motor traffic volume), and user preferences.
They will learn about design details and considerations for each bikeway type, tools for transforming streets, and traffic signal control options to support bicycling.
This class is designed for transportation planners and engineers, land use planners, bicycle program coordinators, consultants, and advocates.
Real estate developers may also find the course valuable to understand how to maximize the bicycling potential and minimize undesired impacts of development.
