Who should attend?

What will you learn?

How well does your community help you find your way? Are there services you would like to use, like public transit, but find it hard to figure out how to access them? Do you avoid places because the route to those places is difficult to navigate? Or are you a transportation employee wondering where to start to improve access to your transportation hubs and services? This session will teach you about wayfinding and transportation connections, enabling you to help your community leaders make good choices for spending local dollars on signs and strategies to help you and others find the way to places in your community you would like to reach!

This webinar will address:

What is wayfinding, a wayfinding assessment, checklists and how they work
How can you take action in your community to improve wayfinding
Best practices in successful community wayfinding
Details of a successful wayfinding program in Greenville, South Carolina
