When street space is restricted, transit and pedestrians are prioritized. When more space is available, additional pedestrian-priority space and wider sidewalks are encouraged, allowing a range of activities, landscaping, and street furniture.
Restrict all vehicular access. Add accessible and grade-level, center running mass transit to give the street a shared quality and to ensure pedestrian priority.
Treat the street as a shared zone to expand the pedestrian realm and increase permeability across the street.
Add side-boarding transit stops at wider sections of the street. Construct accessible platforms that enable fast and easy transit boarding. See: Transit Stops.
Raise intersections to the transit grade where the transit street intersects with cross streets for continuous pedestrian access. Provide a change in pavement markings, pattern, or color to indicate areas where vehicles cross the street.
Add trees and native landscaping where width allows. Street furniture and vendors may be encouraged where possible but a clear path for pedestrians must be maintained.
Loading and deliveries must be permitted only during off-peak hours. See: Volume and Access Management.
