Abstract: The University of British Columbia (UBC) Public Realm Plan for the Vancouver Campus defines the public realm as "the collection of outdoor spaces between buildings shared by the university community."¹ It allows for the "movement of people, information and ideas."² An assessment of UBC's public realm revealed the campus' "bleak"³ landscape. As such, the University allocated $10 million to redesign Main Mall. September 2011 marked the completion of the first stage of the redesign of Main Mall, from University Blvd (U Blvd) to Agronomy Road (Figure 1). This study, consisting of an intercept survey of users of Main Mall and randomized traffic counts on the space, evaluates the effects of the redesign on user experience and bicycle-pedestrian interaction. A discussion of the results and treatment of similar university spaces leads to concrete recommendations that will transform Main Mall into a safe and efficient transportation corridor for all users and a vibrant public space.
