"Stepping Thru Parking and Passenger Drop-Offs and its Connection to the Overall Site"
In this day and age we are not only pedestrians but we are also closely tied to vehicular transportation. And of course there are a myriad of requirements for this as well, starting from the point where we are transitioning from passengers to pedestrians. Whether it is for parking, passenger drop-off, valet service, or transportation such as taxis, buses, or shuttles there are differing requirements for space and slopes, all or which is required to connect with an accessible route. We will review the requirements for each of these types of vehicular to pedestrian transitions.
An overview of the myriad of requirements starting from the point where we are transitioning from passengers to pedestrians whether parking, passenger drop-offs, valet service, or transportation such as taxis, buses, or shuttles
• Understand the scoping requirements for vehicles located off of the public right of way
• Review the varying requirements for parking, passenger drop-off, and valet
• Learn the technical parameters for the pedestrian interface
• Overview specified and unspecified transportation - what it is and the difference in requirements
