AAA cycling design guidelines state that separation of modes is often desired to enhance comfort for all people.  However, sometimes we have cycling routes pass through plaza’s and other shared spaces.  This presentation will provide an overview of Vancouver’s AAA cycling design guidance and then dive into 2017 co-op student research & learnings on interactions of people walking and cycling through plazas and shared corridors.
