Transportation Alternatives

Transportation Alternatives works to reclaim New York City's streets from the automobile and advocate for better walking, biking, and public transit for all New Yorkers. TA believes that our pandemic recovery must begin, in part, by reimagining our largest public asset — New York City’s 6,300 miles of streets and three million free parking spaces — in support of the needs of all New Yorkers. With a coalition of more than 150 educational, environmental, neighborhood, business, labor disability rights, and public health organizations, Transportation Alternatives challenges New York City’s next leaders to make a specific and substantial promise:

  • Convert 25 percent of car space into space for people by 2025.
