A complete street is a roadway that is designed, planned, and implemented to provide safe mobility for road users of all ages and abilities. This includes pedestrians, bicyclists, public transit vehicles, and other motor vehicles. Complete streets are essential in creating a safe and comfortable transportation experience. Each complete street looks different depending on the surrounding context, community needs, and type of mobility device.
The Safe Routes Partnership has put out three new fact sheets with information on success stories, best practices, and resources for advocates of safety and active transportation at the national and regional level.
In the Spring of 2020, Charles T. Brown, Founder and Managing Principal of Equitable Cities LLC, sat down for a series of virtual interviews with Esther Rivera, the Deputy Director of California Walks; Warren Logan, Policy Director of Mobility and Inter Agency Relations at the City of Oakland Mayor’s Office; and Tracy McMillan, Senior Associate at Nelson\Nygaard. Brown led conversations with each transportation professional about complete streets, equity, and COVID-19.
