Transportation Alternatives needs Bronx volunteers more than ever. Late this summer, T.A. will be reviving monthly meetings of its Bronx Committee, and giving volunteers the tools to bring bike lanes, traffic safety and public spaces to their neighborhoods. Join them for their first unofficial meeting at this Sunday’s Car-Free Grand Concourse. They’ll discuss upcoming projects like more car-free events, the NYC Century’s Bronx route and, of course, the 13th Annual Tour de Bronx. Afterwards, join T.A. for a short bike ride featuring some of the newest bike and pedestrian projects coming to the Bronx.
