Enhancing infrastructure for important non-motorized transportation options such as walking, biking and small-wheeled transport (skates, push scooters, skateboards).
"Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time..."
Universally-Designed Intersections: Technologies such as beacon devices that aid the visual impaired to use their smart phones to cross the street and use buses and transit systems.
Smart Mobility Hubs: Central locations where people can connect to multiple modes of transportation in a safe and convenient way.
Peer Smart Community Projects
Buffalo, NY: BNMC Main Street Smart Corridor (2020) - Universally designed intersections use assistive technology to make streets and intersections more accessible and navigable for persons with disabilities.
Minneapolis, MN: Smart Mobility Hubs (2019) - Increases access to convenient, low- or no-carbon transportation options (e.g., transit, shared scooters, "Nice Ride" bicycles).
Columbus, OH: Smart Mobility Hubs (2019) - This project fosters a community of connections and accessibility with increased mobility options and trip planning tools such as public WI-Fi provided at transit centers and on buses.
