Bristol Legible City (BLC) is an innovative project started 20 years ago as a unique concept to improve people’s understanding and experience of the city through the use of identity, information and transportation projects.
The project has recently agreed funding for the next initiative which is to develop innovative city mapping and information resources to support change to more sustainable forms of transport and encourage active travel choices. The initiative will deliver a suite of digital, printed and street-based information products to encourage residents and visitors to explore the city on foot, bike and using the public transport system. BLC’s user-centred approach to way finding and transport information has been developed to support better public health and reduce greenhouse gas production. The initiative will deliver an enhanced pedestrian way finding system across the city and develop new user-friendly information for the cycle network, the MetroBus project and the wider public transport system.
