A tool to help identify, measure and prioritize bicycle and pedestrian projects, and connectivity to transit.
Developed by Transpo Group, ViaCity (“vee-ah-si-tee”) is a leading-edge tool which clearly measures and illustrates the benefit of pedestrian and bicycle projects. ViaCity enables Transpo to proactively pinpoint disconnected street networks, natural and man-made barriers, and areas where sidewalks and bike lanes are unavailable or inadequate. By assessing the quality and safety of the pedestrian and bike network in relation to key destinations like transit, parks, schools, major institutions or employment centers, Transpo Group helps our clients quantify and graphically show the benefits of pedestrian and bicycle projects to their stakeholders. Improving safety and quality of life for the communities we serve is what Transpo is all about, and why ViaCity is such a powerful tool.
The area in red is poorly connected to the light rail station due to a disconnected street network and sidewalk gaps.
Trail and sidewalk improvements increase connectivity to the station, with dark green indicating the most improved areas.
