AUTO RESTRICTED ZONES FOR NORTH AMERICAN CITIES

Concept plans have been developed for auto restricted zones (ARZ) in five cities, and one or more dedmonstrations will soon be implemented. Impetus for development of an ARZ arises from inefficient use of street space, environmental considerations and concern for pedestrians. Each ARZ must be individually designed. No one pattern will fit all sites. Key design factors are activity within the area, the intrinsic attractiveness of the area, transit service, parking policies, size of the area, maintenance of accessibility, the street pattern, institutional inclination and coordination with areawide transportation systems management strategies.
