NACTO Training at Federation of Canadian Municipalities Sustainable Communities Conference

Training Session: How to Design Multimodal Streets for All Users

Alta’s training session at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Sustainable Communities Conference will help urban and rural municipalities make their streets safer, more livable and economically vibrant. Drawing from design guides produced by the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), NACTO-certified trainers will discuss how to:

  1. Design streets and intersections for all users (pedestrians, cyclists, transit riders and drivers)
  2. Integrate cycling and transit lanes into existing roadways
  3. Implement interim street design strategies
  4. Participants and trainers will work together to tackle real-world street design challenges and will share their solutions through group presentations and discussions
