    Recommendation. This study recommends a pedestrian crosswalk walking speed value of m/s ( ft/s) for most conditions, consistent with recommendations described in the Literature Review for Chap Pedestrians, of the Highway Capacity Manual from several sources. In areas with large numbers of older pedestrians, this study recommends a crosswalk walking speed value of m/s, a.

(The dimensions shown here are maximum desirable separations; more frequent connections are preferred).

    H-GAC's Livable Centers Program works with local communities to identify specific recommendations, such as pedestrian and bicycle facilities, that foster the development of Livable Centers. Livable Centers, with concentrations of residential and employment land uses, support more trips .

Bicycles & Transit. Linking bicycles and transit together is a win-win proposition. Bicycle friendly transit vehicles and stations provide cyclists with expanded travel options, and expand transit ridership by helping people more easily access transit stations. A Primer for Smart Growth.

Pedestrian- and Transit-Friendly Design: A Primer for Smart Growth () describes 12 pedestrian- and transit-friendly features for communities. The report contains photos from walkable places and graphics reproduced from award-winning design manuals.

Emphasize pedestrian, transit and bicycle linkages between the CBD core and the major areas of influence surrounding the core, to lessen dependence on the private automobile. Enhance High Capacity Transit use through the provision of adequate access for pedestrians and bicycles at bus stops, transit centers, park-and-ride lots and transit stations.

This primer is based on Pedestrian- Recommendations for pedestrian Transit-Friendly Design, a manual prepared for the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the American Planning Associa-tion (APA).

The primer and manual draw pri-marily on three sourcesŠthe classic urban de-sign literature, the best transit-oriented design manuals, and our own transit-related.

Determining the proper width of a pedestrian space is more complex than it initially appears. Sidewalks are divided into imaginary lanes: the two or three feet adjacent to store windows acts as a "viewing space" for window shoppers; while at the curb, people generally keep a foot distance between themselves and trees, signposts, traffic signs, etc., thus creating a second lane.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Program The Regional Planning Commission’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Program is working to create walkable and bikeable communities for the citizens of Southeast Louisiana. Through the programs and initiatives listed below, we aim to raise awareness, promote safety and encourage increased walking and bicycling.

The continued development of a community’s network of bicycle and pedestrian facilities not only makes bicycling and walking a more viable mode of transportation, but it also contributes to an enhanced quality of life for its residents—benefits may include increased public health, community development, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

DOT operating administrations play a role in improving safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. The document identifies many “pedestrian-friendly design principles” that will need to be addressed by the plan. Some of these principles include: Ensure adequate clear width on sidewalks and other walkways.

Use buffers such as curb parking, tree lawns, and bike racks to separate pedestrians from motor vehicle traffic. Bicycle & Pedestrian Project Development & Design Guidance Design guidelines, bicycle accommodations types, and bicycle route signing and mapping.

Communities are encouraged to maintain existing pedestrian and bicycle linkages within development areas and provide new ones where appropriate and feasible.

Manual on Pedestrian and Bicycle Connections to Transit (Report ) ftareportnopdf This manual provides a compendium of best practices to help transit and other transportation professionals improve pedestrian and bicycle safety and access to transit, including information on evaluating, planning for, and implementing improvements to Location: New Jersey Avenue, S.E.

Here you can learn more about Florida's bicycle and pedestrian facilities, easily navigate related internal and external websites and contact your FDOT District Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator. FDOT is a de-centralized agency and most programmatic decisions are made at the District level.

The book compiles best practices to help transit and other transportation professionals improve pedestrian and bicycle safety as well as access to transit. This includes guidance on evaluating, planning for, and implementing infrastructure improvements.

It also provides a review of the research to back up what these practices do and why they work. The Greenbook's guidance for pedestrian and bicycle facilities is based on the principles that all new highways [i.e., any "public way for purposes of traffic"], except limited access highways, should be designed and constructed under the assumption they will be used by pedestrians.

transit, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic as part of a balanced multi-modal transportation system. • Policy Improve pedestrian and bicycle access to transit facilities.

• Policy Provide sufficient pedestrian movement space with a minimum of pedestrian congestion in accordance with a pedestrian street classification system.Active Transportation Plan. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has completed its first Active Transportation Plan, which is an update to the Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.

The Active Transportation Plan outlines a vision and framework for improving conditions for walking and bicycling across Pennsylvania, most notably for those Pennsylvanians who walk.The Regional Bicycle Network (RBN) is a vision for a future, interconnected bicycle network that connects regional destinations across the four-county region.

This effort is to facilitate cross-jurisdictional planning for bicycle connectivity and highlights key gaps and missing links. The RBN is built from the existing networks of trails, bicycle lanes, and neighborhood greenways.
