Streets have a vital role in place making. Successful streets balance requirements to move people and goods, connect buildings and public spaces, and create settings for life. How can urban transportation policies and streetscape design help achieve good urban design and more liveable cities and communities?
In this course, we'll answer this question by exploring planning and urban design issues for transit, cars, cycling, walkability, and parking. We'll also learn about the relationship between transportation and built form, neighbourhood traffic calming, and the features of transit-oriented developments.
We’ll use case studies to help analyze the competing demands for road space, including access, linkages, and urban design and public realm issues.
