APBP 2019 monthly webinar series:
  • January 16
    Bus Stops with Bikeways: Designing transit stops with on-street bicycle facilities
    The increasing emergence of on-street bicycle facilities, including bike lanes and physically separated facilities, pose challenges for integrating transit stops while avoiding conflicts and delay for bicyclists and transit users. This webinar will explore the best practices for designing streets for bicycling and transit.

  • February 20
    Viewing Low-Stress Networks through an Equity Lens
    Our state of practice has improved the tools for assessing the quality of bicycle and pedestrian networks through the lens of comfort and safety, but -- in planning these networks -- are we including all potential users? This webinar will examine inclusive strategies for developing plans and metrics that are meaningful across social and cultural demographics.

  • March 20
    Navigating without curbs: Accessibility on shared streets
    Shared streets are becoming a common Placemaking tool for our communities. Creating streets where the curbs are removed in favor of low-speed and vibrant shared spaces creates challenges for users who have vision impairment, both in terms of identifying conflicts with other users and navigating a corridor with minimally defined edges. This webinar will explore the latest guidance in addressing the needs of persons with no or low vision in shared streets and plazas.

  • April 17
    Designing Streets for the Speeds You Want
    Should 85-percentile speeds determine the design and operation of streets in your community? How can we lower speeds to improve safety if we don’t have the right tools and policies? This webinar will examine the relationship between posted, design and target speed in designing safer streets.

  • May 15
    Maintaining green infrastructure: hints for success
    Now that you've got your green bicycle, pedestrian, and transit infrastructure, what's your plan to maintain it? How can green infrastructure elements be planned for, designed, and operated to ensure quality maintenance of these community assets.

  • June 19
    Finding common ground with our first responders: enhancing safety and maintaining access in street design
    Our first responders provide the first line of defense against community emergencies. The notion that “every second counts” has left its mark on our communities, creating wide and fast streets. Though intended to provide efficient access for first responders, this type of street design creates unintended consequences (namely, speed and unsafe behavior) for other roadway users. How can agencies find common ground to address the needs of emergency response, while maintaining low speed networks that support safe and convenient active transportation? Invite your local first responders to join you for this webinar.

  • July 17
    Return on investment for active transportation
    The economic benefits of walkable and bikeable communities are well documented. In addition to capital gains, investment in placemaking and active transportation yield intangible, societal benefits. This webinar takes a broad look at the wide spectrum of benefits to be gleaned when placing walking, biking and placemaking at the forefront of community design.

  • August 21
    Getting the Green Light: Improving actuation and detection for cyclists & pedestrians
    Traffic signals often provide the most convenient and secure opportunity for bicyclists and pedestrians to navigate busy intersections and high-speed roadways. But signals are only effective if properly designed. Providing adequate detection, reliable actuation and proper phasing of signals can greatly improve bicycle and pedestrian access in a community. This webinar will examine current best practices for integrating detection, actuation and phasing for with active modes of transportation.

  • September 18
    Can we talk about the street? Building support for controversial projects
    Proposing solutions that call for reallocating roadway space can stir up controversy. This webinar will examine innovative approaches to building support for innovation in the public right-of-way. How do we manage the conversation in a way that both educates and inspires our stakeholders?

  • October 16
    If we build it will they come? Estimating demand for biking and walking
    It is an age-old question: How do we make the case for investing in bicycling and walking without solid evidence that the results will pay off? This webinar will explore traditional methods, as well as emerging practices for estimating demand and benefits of bicycling and walking.

  • November 20
    Aging in Place: Designing communities to support mobility
    One of the greatest challenges for maintaining the health and independence of our aging population is designing communities that provide accessible connections to support the changing mobility needs of our elders. Designing communities with the senior in mind can provide improved opportunities for healthy transportation while preserving independence and dignity for people who wish to age in place. What’s more, communities that work for our eldest populations benefit users of all abilities.

  • December 18
    Education and Encouragement: Bringing the right people together
    What really change a person’s behavior? How can agencies and activist help inform and encourage appropriate behavior on our streets and pathways? When new infrastructure or operations are introduced, how can we ensure that users understand intentions and exhibit safe operation? How do we best utilize the resources of agency staff and advocacy resources to help this process? This webinar will examine the effectiveness of Education and Encouragement, how to we broaden the tent of who’s involved in the so called “soft” E’s.
