In many ways, planning and designing transportation solutions is an exercise in allocating resources. Emerging trends in transportation are shifting the resource paradigm beyond travel lanes, parking, and green time. Competition is increasing for storage and mobility space for shared mobility modes and curb space. And, planners using valuable staff time to implement non‐physical, programmatic measures to affect behavior. This session will explore the evolving resource demands created by emerging transportation modes and shifting user expectations, as experienced by planners and engineers in Denver and Boulder.

Learning Objectives:

1) Ways of measuring and planning for curb space, as well as strategies to increase curb space productivity.

2) Lessons learned through pilot projects that incorporate Transportation Network Companies.

3) Policy‐level considerations for emerging transportation modes.
