Webinar: Building Protected Bike Lanes That Work for Pedestrians
March 18, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Last fall, Walk San Francisco, the pedestrian advocacy organization that leads San Francisco’s Vision Zero Coalition, released a first-of-its kind report, Getting to the Curb: A Guide to Building Protected Bike Lanes That Work for Pedestrians.
Cities across the United States are rolling out protected bike lanes to create safer and more enjoyable conditions for people riding bikes. But what has been less studied is the impact on pedestrians in getting access to the curb, particularly the most vulnerable pedestrians: seniors and people with disabilities. Our Getting to the Curb report took an in-depth look at how protected bike lanes could be designed to provide easy and direct curb access for all pedestrians.
It was a collaborative effort drawing on the wisdom and work from Walk SF’s partners in our city agencies, as well as the Senior & Disability Work Group of the Vision Zero Coalition including Senior & Disability Action, the Independent Living Resource Center of San Francisco, and Age & Disability Friendly SF.
