Curb Appeal: Curbside Management Strategies for Improving Transit Reliability
This paper provides examples of how cities have successfully changed curb use to support transit. It is focused on the types of busy, store-lined streets where high-ridership transit lines often struggle with reliability. These key curbside management strategies support reliable transit and safer streets in one of two ways: either by directly making room for transit, or supporting transit projects by better managing the many demands on the urban curb.
Having the option to make small reductions in curbside parking can make or break a transit project.
Putting curbside change into a neighborhood context helps cities move from talking about parking loss to talking about tradeoffs, and is a more realistic approach to understanding how curbs are used near busy transit streets.
Transit projects that make heavy demands of the curb need to be planned beyond the specific street. Managing curbsides at a neighborhood scale makes it possible to assign curbside uses that don’t need to be directly in front of a destination, and planning for access beyond the corridor makes it easier to reassign parking on a corridor.
