The street is redesigned to prioritize transit and shared mobility, improve walking conditions and public space, and transform key transfer nodes into recognizable landmarks.
Eliminate excess traffic lanes and designate a curbside transit lane in each direction. Marked transit lanes may be shared with taxis and small collective transport. To ensure smooth operation of collective transport services, provide pull-in and drop-off stops for boarding, which allows other transit vehicles to pass. These alternate with accessible parking spaces and taxi stands. See: Transit Facilities.
Widen sidewalks and provide universal accessibility to better serve the needs of heavy pedestrian volumes.
Extend the curb to create dedicated areas for vendors in the same zone as pull-in lanes, ensuring a clear path for pedestrians.
Extend the central median to create pedestrian refuge islands. See: Pedestrian Refuges.
Provide signage and wayfinding for transit stops to help navigate the users and to identify transit routes.
Add street furniture and trees to provide a comfortable street environment. See: Pedestrian Toolbox.
