REPORT TO BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY COMMITTEE

SUBJECT

Title

Sidewalk Standard at Bus Stops (Shariat)

 

Report

BACKGROUND

At the March 2018 Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) meeting, BPAC Member Kratz requested to have the BPAC discuss “sidewalk standards at bus stops” as part of the list of items for future discussion. As described by Member Kratz, this item involves standard design and construction details for sidewalks adjacent to bus stops. Member Kratz was particularly concerned with situations where planter strips may exist between the sidewalk and the curb which could create potential problems for pedestrians entering and exiting a bus.

 

At the September 21, 2020 BPAC meeting, staff will present the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority’s “Bus Stop and Passenger Facilities Standards” (Attachment 1), which provides standard details for bus stop locations, including sidewalks.
