Promoting Independence and Access through Responsible Design Part 3: Curbside Access (5-28-19)

Presented by TransCen, Inc. and the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center
Join us for our 4 part series, Promoting Independence and Access through Responsible Design. Melissa Anderson, PE, formerly a Transportation Engineer for the U.S. Access Board, will present a four-part webinar series designed to improve the understanding of why and how to provide accessible pedestrian facilities in the public right of way.  The series will begin with a discussion of legal obligations, how the Standards and guidelines apply and then move through the components of pedestrian access and how to actually achieve access.
Part 3: Curbside Access
Beyond the sidewalks and curb ramps, people need access to other transportation modes, such as transit, passenger vehicles and even shared bike systems.  This webinar will provide information on designing these connections.  It will cover the design of transit stops, on-street parking and passenger loading zones and even some best practices on shared bike systems.
