Redesign large streets to accommodate both through- and destination-oriented traffic. Give priority to movement of high occupancy vehicles, like mass transit, van-pools, and taxis, to increase the street’s capacity.
Add dedicated transit lanes and enable in-lane transit stops using bulbs or islands. See: Transit Stops.
If transit frequency is low, consider allowing taxis and other means of collective transport in these lanes to increase the movement capacity.
Widen the central median at the intersection and at transit stops to create refuge islands. Refuge islands, when paired with curb extensions at parking spaces, help in reducing time and crossing distances for pedestrians.
Widen sidewalks to provide universal access, add green infrastructure, and increase space for pedestrians and commercial activity.
Reduce travel lanes and add parking protected cycle tracks in each direction.
Side-running directional cycle tracks allow easy and convenient access for cyclists. See: Cycle Facilities.
Restrict freight delivery or encourage off peak delivery to eliminate double-parking obstructions. See: Design Hour.
Support new configurations and traffic patterns through education campaigns and proactive enforcement. Allow users time to adjust to significant transformations.
Add landscaping to provide shade and greenery, with potential to supplement stormwater management. These additions may also help attract new businesses.
