Goal 1: Remove unnecessary barriers

Ensure safe access for vision disabled to boarding islands

Floating boarding islands are increasingly being used in association with separated bicycle paths at sidewalk level. Pedestrains who are vision disabled need perceptible information about where to cross bike lanes to get to boarding islands. Tactile walking surface indicators should be used to alert pedestrians who are vision disabled to bike lane crossings. Surface treatments and markings should be used to alert cyclists to the likelihood of pedestrians. Cyclists should be required to yield to pedestrians.
