Cycling Routes Planning

Use CurbIQ to analyze the impact of removal or reallocation of different curbside uses along a given route. This allows for quicker roll out and implementation of cycle routes, based on optimal design scenarios.

Cities are rapidly expanding their network of cycle infrastructure; this largely relies on the reappropriation of road space and more specifically reallocation of the curb lane to cycle infrastructure.

A study for the implementation of a new cycle route may require diverse efforts such as in-field surveying, identifying and quantifying driveways, curb cuts, and curbside uses that will require reallocation. Access to a digital curbside inventory can eliminate the time and effort spent in surveying. It also allows for the evaluation and comparison of alternative routes.

The impact of each alternative, in terms of reallocated spaces and infrastructure required, can be measured and compared. This also makes it possible to understand the impact of the transformation early on, in the planning phase.

  • Provide stats on the parking and loading zone inventory in the immediate vicinity of any given section along the route, numbers that can be used to justify the intervention and prove that additional spaces are available in proximity. 
  • Compare alternative routes and measure impacts resulting from curbside reallocation.
  • Quickly prepare quantitative analysis of proposed cycle routes, based on curbside data, eliminating the need for on-field surveying.
  • Pull in demand data to complement supply and help understand usage of existing parking to aid in decision making
