Scott Stringer Asks: What Are Your Budget Priorities?
If you had to choose where the city should cut funding, which mode of transportation would you target? Personal automobiles, cabs, Access-A-Ride? How about buses, subways, bikes, and pedestrian safety enhancements?
This somewhat loaded prompt is one of several transportation-related questions posed by Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer in an online survey on the next city budget. There’s also an open-ended comment section at the end.
Results will be included as part of Stringer’s response to the mayor’s budget proposal, which calls for $5 million in cuts to DOT "Complete Streets" projects. The deadline for responses is this Friday, March 5. If you have a few minutes to spare this week, it couldn’t hurt to click on over.
