Help NYC Develop a Citywide Transit Plan
As NYC grows, we urgently need thoughtful planning to improve our public transportation. So I’m very pleased that the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) is working with us to do just that.
And they want your input -- through public input sessions in all 5 boroughs, and an online survey.
Where do you need to go via public transit that you can’t get now?
Do we need to bring back the B71/Union Street bus service? Or maybe enhance it with a new connection to Manhattan (through the Battery Tunnel, adding a critical new link for Red Hook as well)?
Do you want F Train Service to work for all Brooklynites? (I know the answer to that one)
This is your chance to let DOT know what you’d like to see for NYC’s transit system:
Brooklyn Borough Workshop: DOT’s Brooklyn Borough Workshop will take place next week, on Feb. 7 at 6 PM at Brooklyn College Student Center.
Take the Survey: If you can’t make it out in-person (or even if you can!), you can take a few minutes to fill out this online survey to share where you go, how you travel and what you would do to make the system even better.
Only through thoughtful, long-term, inclusive planning can we get the transit infrastructure we’ll need for the coming decades:
One that connects New Yorkers in every neighborhood to jobs (in a city where they are less likely to be located in Manhattan), to places to live, and to all that our city has to offer.
One that reduces our reliance on cars, relieves traffic congestion, confronts climate change, and promotes resiliency.
One that keeps us safe, competitive, and sane (ok, maybe the last one is too much to ask).
Thanks to Commissioner Trottenberg and the DOT team for making this happen.
Now, let’s be sure our voices are heard!
