Decisions that may initially seem specific to a certain mode have greater ramifications across a system. The following ideas/links underscore that theme:

Last year, we also helped publish a couple of research papers about lean data collection systems and curbside space demarcation.
In 2017, we’ll continue to target assumptions and focus on the impacts decisions have across various modes, hopefully providing more data-driven thoughts about how cities can further improve access, livability, and traffic.
