Welcome! As cities grow, the needs of those who live or visit them also change and the way our infrastructure is designed and organized affects the way we live, wouldn’t you agree?
Curbside space is usually used for parking or bus stops, but with society and mobility evolving, it is increasingly used for other purposes such as public space, terraces, delivery areas, charging stations or cycling and shared mobility infrastructure. This can lead to a competitive situation between uses and users and where public space is not optimized for its best use. This short introductory course will give you a practical understanding of how flexible curbside management can help cities to manage their curb more effectively:
By the end of this course, you will be able understand:
- The benefits of flexible curbside management over traditional curbside management, and how technology allows a more dynamic use of the curb.
- How to design a curbside according to users needs, looking at tactical urbanism and illustrating it with examples of best practice.
- The role of authorities, decision-makers, and citizens in this process and what their benefits are.
