Bus rapid transit (BRT) and high-priority bus transit projects can improve mobility and enhance accessibility for residents. Transit agencies and municipalities also need to consider impacts on the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, October 11, 2023 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that will share the City of Austin, TX and Capital Metro’s experience in planning, designing, and constructing pedestrian and bicycle accommodations in high-priority/BRT transit corridors. Presenters will share successes, challenges, lessons learned, and how they worked with the public to design and construct a BRT system.

This webinar is based on TCRP Synthesis 169: Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety in Bus Rapid Transit and High-Priority Bus Corridors.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program.

There is no fee to attend this webinar. Registration is required.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
