Expanding Access to Pedestrian Infrastructure and Improving Public Safety: Tools and Case Studies

Smart Growth Network "Walktober Walkinar" Series

[Virtual]

Participants of this live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits

The final Walkinar will look at how transit and pedestrian infrastructure can be improved to expand access and improve public safety, through tools and case studies from Maryland and beyond. 

Stephanie Dipetrillo of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University will discuss how the built environment around transit facilities can affect how people use transit.

Montgomery County Planning is using a new strategy to improve road safety for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.  Their “Predictive Safety Analysis” is a proactive data-driven approach designed to prevent severe and fatal crashes before they happen.  Tune in to learn how this effort will help eliminate all traffic deaths and injuries in the county by 2030! 

Finally, Carden Wyckoff of Atlanta will take a look at transit equity through the lens of someone who uses a wheelchair by sharing her experiences and insights about the importance of rollability and the value of universal design for all.
