Goals & Objectives

The ultimate objective of the project is to improve the pedestrian right of way in order to make it a successful and facilitating element of public transit for all users.

Three immediate objectives of this project contribute to that ultimate objective; they can be met by achieving corresponding measurable goals:

  1. Identify, collect, organize, describe and analyze existing materials.
    Goal: Materials include accessible pedestrian design and construction guidelines from the US government and other entities such as the Department for International Development (DFID) Guidelines of 2004; research reports; tool kits; sample state code on accessible pedestrian design; public agency policy manuals on pedestrian design; and training materials for the various disciplines who create pedestrian rights of way.
  2. Identify strengths, weaknesses and gaps. Goal: Establish protocols for assessment & identification of gaps.
  3. Identify audiences and the tailoring of materials that would best meet their needs.
    Goal: Select the range of audiences that would have the most impact by identifying the most influential entities and options for best communication.
