The National Association of City Transportation Officials has a vision to build cities as places for people, with safe, sustainable, accessible, and equitable transportation choices that support a strong economy and vibrant quality of life.
NACTO’s publications provide a vital resource for practitioners, policy-makers, academics, and advocates.
Their Global Street Design Guide provides the principles and detail for delivering a people centred city and is a great starting point for any country or city wanting to know how to design walkable cities. The Designing for Pedestrians section in particular has subsections on: Pedestrian Networks; Pedestrian Toolbox; Sidewalks (Types, Geometry and Design Guidance); Pedestrian Crossings (including Crossing Types); Pedestrian Refuges; Sidewalk Extensions; Universal Accessibility; and Wayfinding.
