Send a Thank You to the People Who Are Changing NYC Streets

2010 is almost over, and it's about time to step back and assess all the progress that's been made in just the past 12 months. This year alone, New York City has seen the transformation of Broadway near Union Square, the taming of traffic on Prospect Park West, the launch of Select Bus Service on one of the nation's busiest bus routes, the addition of several miles of protected bike routes in Manhattan, and pedestrian safety improvements throughout the boroughs.

With a conflict-hungry press corps ready to pounce on every change and electeds willing to oblige with camera-ready political theater, livable streets improvements are catching a lot of static right now. The Tri-State Transportation Campaign is trying to cut through the noise by sending a big thank you to the mayor and leaders in his administration overseeing transportation policy.

If you want to see NYC continue to be a bold leader in green transportation and safer streets in 2011, tell the people in charge and sign on to Tri-State's thank you letter.
