Changing travel patterns, the rise of e-commerce, and new transportation technologies are shifting the demands for limited curbside space. Transit, driving, parking, ride hailing, deliveries, and more are all vying for limited space.
DC has piloted changes such as dynamic parking pricing in Chinatown, new nightime drop-off zones on Connecticut Avenue, innovative freight delivery programs in neighborhoods like Georgetown and around the ballpark, and more. Rosslyn and Arlington County are exploring innovative steps to take there as well.
DCST and its members will work with transportation agencies to help propose, implement, and evaluate pilot programs and permanent changes to better balance curb space for all.
