Buses in Urban Developments

23rd January 2018
119 Britannia Walk, London, N1 7JE
This half day event will focus on how buses play a vital part in providing accessibility for everyone and, through their efficient use of space, supporting the viability of high quality urban places.
Overview of the Launch

For buses to play their full role, however, urban developments must be designed specifically to encourage their use. This involves bringing together the planning of land uses, the access routes to bus stops, and the bus infrastructure. Showing how this can be done is the unique contribution of 'Buses in Urban Developments'.

With the publication of 'Manual for Streets' in 2007 and 'Manual for Streets 2: Wider Application of the Principles', published by CIHT in 2010, official recognition was given for the first time to the importance of placemaking in the design of highways and other transport infrastructure, particularly in urban areas.

CIHT is developing a range of guidelines which will be based upon work carried out over the last few years in updating elements of the 1997 publication 'Transport in the Urban Environment' to assist professionals in implementing 'Manual for Streets'. This work will be grouped under the overall title of Streets and Transport in the Urban Environment. Buses in Urban Developments is the latest contribution for STUE.
