Best Practices in Pedestrian Wayfinding
This is a 90-minute webinar

Walking benefits a city’s transportation system, economy, and public health. Wayfinding designed specifically for walkers encourages pedestrian traffic by helping people navigate—whether they are tourists, residents, new walkers or persons with disabilities. During this 90-minute webinar, agency staff and consultants who pioneered legible city wayfinding projects in London and Bristol describe state-of-the-art programs in Philadelphia, Vancouver and New York City. Planners, engineers, and elected officials should attend this webinar to explore the principles of legible city wayfinding and learn how to create a complete movement and information system for walkers.

Information included in this session:

· How wayfinding requirements for pedestrians differ from other modes
· The concepts and principles of legible city wayfinding, including the need to shape universal ideas to the local context
· Steps to build a program, from policy through design, finance and implementation
· The architecture and elements of a wayfinding system, including the role of social and digital media
· How to maintain and manage a system
· Ways to add value by connecting to transit and other modes and leveraging GIS data to serve multiple systems and partners

Presenters:

Adrian Bell, Partner, Applied Information Group North America (Vancouver)
Wendy Feuer, Assistant Commissioner of Urban Design and Art, NYC Department of Transportation
David Kanthor, AICP, Transportation Initiatives Manager at the Center City District, Philadelphia
Mike Rawlinson, Design Director, City ID (Bristol, UK)
Keri Tyler, City Planner/Project Manager at NYC Department of Transportation
