The City must undertake a plan to develop a comprehensive wayfinding system for the City. Of central importance to the wayfinding system is connecting people to the City’s trails and to historical and cultural attractions. Wayfinding elements must serve all users: Signage for bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorists serves the important function of helping to orient people to their surroundings. Feeling oriented in a place increases comfort and satisfaction and increases frequency of use. Generally, signage should be placed regularly along designated routes and at decision points. Design should be consistent and understandable by the widest group of people possible, and messaging should be concise. Previously recommended wayfinding signage, developed for the Trenton Station Linkage Plan provides a good starting point for a city-wide signage program.
CCD's Walk!Philadelphia is a good example for pedestrian wayfinding. Both programs match styles and are complementary methods of wayfinding.
