NACTO Design Guide Training
Designing Streets for Transit

 

Click here or scroll to bottom of page to complete registration.

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.

Training Modules:

  • 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.
Training includes lunch, and registrants may purchase a discounted copy of the NACTO Transit Street Design Guide.  (Purchase is optional but must be completed by January 11 to receive the Guide at the workshop.)
