Public transportation is the heartbeat of New York. It’s the way we get to work, school, and the doctor’s office–and it needs to work for everyone. Kathryn’s plan will deliver a safe, reliable and efficient transportation system to power our recovery.
Today, our streets and sidewalks are a losing battle between competing uses
Instead, we must ensure that our public spaces serve the public first.
Even before COVID, too many New Yorkers faced long, unreliable commutes to work and school, and entire neighborhoods were underserved by public transportation. Incremental change here isn’t going to cut it.
Smart, effective transportation strategy means bringing new jobs closer to where New Yorkers live, learn and play–and protecting our environment. Kathryn’s transportation plan is the most climate focused plan.
Our plan will create more equitable access to jobs by expanding transportation options, but also protect our health and make our streets, sidewalks, and bike lanes safer and more enjoyable. Building on the success of open streets and outdoor dining, we have an unprecedented opportunity to redefine our streetscape and create vibrant outdoor spaces that will attract tourism and drive our recovery.
