On Tuesday, February 3, New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT) will be teaming up with New York Public Transit Association (NYPTA) for a lobby day in Albany to discuss pedestrian, bicycling and transit infrastructure. Join us!
In light of yesterday’s State of the State address, now is the time to let your Albany legislators know that sustainable transportation options are important to you. This should be a big year for transportation, with several five-year capital plans that need to be adopted—and funded!—for roads, bridges, and transit infrastructure. It is key that legislators hear the message and fill the gap in funding for active transportation.
This year, advocates throughout New York will converge in Albany to meet with policymakers to call for dedicated funding in the state budget for pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure projects, as well as fully-funded capital plans for transit systems across the state.
