[ARCHIVED] Look to the Future: Travel through time with RTC

owlized kiosk

The Visualizing Sustainable Transportation project will provide interactive visualizations using augmented reality displaying potential transportation options for Santa Cruz County. The goal of the project is to provide a fun and immersive community experience.

The visualizations use an OWLtm viewer to demonstrate transportation and land use options that address congestion, city and county plans/projects, the passage of Measure D, discussions about priorities with community leaders, and state mandates to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Visualizations highlight:

  • Optimize use of existing streets through enhanced bicycle, pedestrian and transit facilities
  • Expanded safe mobility options for all members of the community
  • Options that decrease greenhouse gas emissions from vehicle miles traveled
  • Walk-friendly, compact, mixed-use neighborhoods
  • Options that decrease personal transportation expenses thereby increasing the amount of money that can be reinvested in the local economy

Look to the future; travel through time right on the spot

  • Now - November 15: Soquel Drive @ Chanticleer, near the Sutter Surgery Center
  • October 21-November 29: Natural Bridges @ the railroad crossing near the Wrigley Building
  • Spring 2018 Watsonville and Live Oak

Participants will be able to provide feedback about the short and long term visualizations via a short survey on the Owl viewer. Each visual will also be accessible through a “pocket owl” for smart phones, computers or other devices. The “pocket owl” will be available after the Owl viewers are up.

For more information about the Visualizing SustainableTransportation in Santa Cruz County project or to view the Soquel Drive/Chanticleer and West Santa Cruz pocket Owls, please visit the project website.
