National NACTO Event on Micromobility to be Hosted in St. Louis

CMT has teamed up with the Bike-Share Working Group to assist in the planning of two public visioning sessions held during the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) Micromobility Conference at T-Rex in downtown St. Louis scheduled for April 29th to May 1, 2019.

The visioning sessions are designed to garner public input on how to spend revenue from the Micromobility Fund. Participants will have the opportunity to walk through pop-up versions of potential street treatments, like protected bike lanes, parklets, and traffic calming designs, to experience the potential investments and provide feedback first-hand.

The goals of the NACTO gathering are:
1.         Evaluate the performance of plans over the past year, and update NACTO’s Guidelines for the Regulation and Management of Shared Active Transportation.

  1. Better understand what operationalizing equity really means beyond discount programs and how to best implement those practices for the benefit of the greater community.
  2. Give city government implementers a place to gather and share best practices.

CMT has been a member of the Bike-Share Working Group since its inception.  Additionally, CMT staff sits on the St. Louis Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee established by East-West Gateway.  CMT is committed to improving bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure as a means to enhance and provide better access to the public transit system.
