Curbside Management in Transit-Oriented Development Areas: Lessons from the City of Coquitlam
October 25, 2022@12:00 pm to 1:00 pm PDT
The transportation profession is beginning to recognize that the curbside can accommodate more than just on-street parking. The City of Coquitlam is currently undertaking a City-Wide Parking Review to review and update on-street and off-street parking policies to better address evolving region-wide mobility trends, support sustainability goals, and accommodate future parking needs. As part of this review, WATT Consulting Group led the Curbside Management Study that featured a robust data collection program on curbside activity for a high-demand area in Coquitlam. The resulting data was used to develop policies and regulations to manage and balance the wide variety of competing curbside uses within Coquitlam’s Transit-Oriented Development areas. This included a set of guiding principles, a policy framework, and a toolkit to guide decision-making and implementation of curbside management. Learn about how different street users are using the curbside throughout the day.
