A single curb data standard

With no fewer than 13 ongoing or anticipating efforts to create standards data for encoding street curbs, compelling transport advocacy group Transportation for America (T4A) to step in call for a national standard. The universal curbside language and standards (UCLS) would "allow local governments to leverage a standardized, nationally-based guideline to create a customized curbside management strategy for their city that equitably and strategically manages the demand on the curb and serves all curb users."

The emergence of this effort suggests that T4A will make a major effort to advance this during the Biden administration's first term.
