A complete streets approach promises full inclusion in transportation projects, from design through operation, to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and public transportation users of all ages and abilities are able to safely move along and across a complete street, including drivers, public transportation riders, pedestrians, and bicyclists as well as older people, children, and people with disabilities.

A complete streets approach promises full inclusion in transportation projects, from design through operation, to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and public transportation users of all ages and abilities are able to safely move along and across a complete street, including drivers, public transportation riders, pedestrians, and bicyclists as well as older people, children, and people with disabilities. With this one‐day event, UCLA plans to bring together an array of urban thinkers and visionaries to explore current boundaries of research in areas that are integral to the promise of complete streets. The program has been designed specifically to meet the needs of people working with public agencies and departments that have responsibility for imminent redevelopment. It also promises to be of intense interest to those engaged in practice or research, especially in the fields of transportation, urban planning, public policy, law, architecture, public health, and others.
