Curbs have become the most hotly contested urban spaces. From new private courier, rideshare, and scooter services to new public uses like parkets, transit lanes, and bike corrals, demand for curb space has elevated its status as a public asset. Many cities have started using asset management techniques to take control of curbs, and others taking the approach off the curb and into the streets and sidewalks.
