Can Technology Help Cities Manage Curbs Better?

My list


Picture an average day on a busy city street. Start with the morning rush: trucks unloading their goods; buses unloading passengers; pedestrians and cyclists weaving through traffic; drivers searching for parking; taxis ending their rides or beginning them. The rhythm continues throughout the day, with Amazon vans, ride shares and couriers all taking up curb space.

To this already complicated recipe, now stir in the more recent additions: bike-share docks, e-scooter and cargo bike hubs, outdoor dining structures, E.V. charging stations, parklets and rain gardens. Perhaps at night things slow down, though the pulse of pickups, drop-offs and overnight parking continues. By sunrise, the ceaseless flow begins again.
