The future is inherently uncertain, but we provide you with tools that allow you to speak confidently about potential outcomes. Our latest tool, CurbSpace+ allows you to put projects of varying sizes and use compositions through their paces in future vehicle fleet scenarios of your choice. Vehicle fleet options include TNCs and AVs. This first-of-its-kind tool then shows in real time how the number of vehicle trips and parking and passenger curb demand change based on your chosen land use and vehicle fleet scenarios.
How CurbSpace+ Works
Simultaneous Use Translation
A particularly valuable feature of the tool is that it allows you to determine how your chosen scenario’s curb demand translates into simultaneous use, allowing you to size passenger loading areas to match.

Curbs of the Future
We recently partnered with Uber on two curb studies that reveal the potential to increase efficiency and productivity at and around the curb. Click here to explore our Cincinnati and San Francisco Curb Studies.
ITE Curbside Management Practitioner's Guide
Fehr & Peers staff served as project manager and co-authors of the ITE Complete Streets Council efforts to develop a handbook for local jurisdictions on how to inventory, assess, enhance, and prioritize curb spaces to meet the multimodal demands at the curb in a safe and efficient way. The Practitioner’s Guide was envisioned to address key gaps in existing curbside guidance.
San Francisco Planning Travel & Loading Demand Update
Fehr & Peers and the City of San Francisco are conducting the first citywide, data-driven study of how land use development interacts with curbside loading, and developing a framework to estimate future curb demand in San Francisco. Resulting data provides a new foundation for how new development can plan for and accommodate changing loading demand for a variety of contexts.
