NACTO shares expertise on temporary active travel

Cycle lane in New York City

THE National Association of City Transportation Officials is hosting an online webinar in which first movers in the radical restructuring of urban transport currently underway will share their learnings.

Radically shifting travel patterns under the pandemic have prompted city transport authorities worldwide to take fast action to help essential workers and the general public get around safely.

Cities are expanding narrow sidewalks to facilitate safe queueing and walking, building out bike facilities to ease demand on transit, and increasing capacity where it’s needed most.

In this moderated discussion led by Washington, DC, speakers from Milan and Montréal will discuss how their cities have approached building temporary bicycle and pedestrian facilities as a coronavirus response and recovery strategy.

From Milan's Open Streets adaptation strategy to Montréal's corridors sanitaires to Washington, DC's tactical sidewalk extensions, join us to learn why all three cities are investing in temporary facilities and how they are planning and implementing them quickly and safely.

The webinar features presentations by Linda Bailey, Washington, DC, Valérie Gagnon, from Montréal and Demetrio Scopelliti, from Milan and takes place on Thursday, May 14 | 12-1 PM ET / 9-10 AM PT
