Dear Friends,  


We need your help - and all it takes is your signature.

New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT), a coalition founded by Parks & Trails New York, the New York Bicycling Coalition and Tri-State Transportation Campaign, has been working to ensure New Yorkers of all ages and abilities are provided with safe, healthy, and low-cost active transportation.

Unfortunately, recent reductions in funding, on a state and federal level, have greatly limited the ability of communities to develop the infrastructure needed to implement the state's Complete Streets law and promote bicycling and walking.

 

What you can do:

Join us in signing a letter to Governor Cuomo requesting:

  • $20 million in the 2014-15 state budget specifically dedicated to funding pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure projects, with a minimum additional commitment of $20 million annually over the next 5 years.
  • Revision of NYSDOT's Preservation First policy so that it does not exclude new pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure projects and is consistent with the intent of the state's Complete Streets law.

We must hear from you by December 9.

 

It takes two clicks

  1. Read the letter
  2. Sign on

Thank you for standing up for trails and active transportation.

 

Sincerely,

Robin 

Robin Dropkin

Executive Director
