Still Undecided? Here’s Even More Transpo Info on the Mayoral Candidates

In case Streetsblog's guide to the mayoral candidates wasn't exhaustive enough for you, here's a truly epic compendium of where they all stand on transportation issues: CUNY's University Transportation Research Center has put out a 145-page white paper [PDF] covering what the Democratic and Republican candidates have said about everything from the taxi of tomorrow and dollar vans to freight policy and school buses.

Want to learn more about mayoral transportation platforms? A new white paper offers a comprehensive summary. Image: ##http://www.utrc2.org/publications/nyc-mayoral-transportation-white-paper##UTRC##

The document provides brief, side-by-side summaries of the candidates' positions on 14 different issues, but the real meaty part starts on page 70, with an appendix compiling the candidates' transportation-related positions, public remarks, and political and professional histories.

In addition to our guide and UTRC's comprehensive white paper, these resources are useful in evaluating the mayoral candidates before voting:

In addition to the mayor's race, New Yorkers will be voting in primaries for City Council, comptroller, public advocate, and, in some boroughs, district attorney and borough president. (Manhattanites may want to look at what candidates in their highly-competitive borough president race had to say about bike-share and other issues at a recent forum.)

Make sure you check your voter registration status and polling location before heading out tomorrow. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Gov. Hochul's "little guys" certainly have big wallets. Meanwhile, the rest of us suffer with declining subway service and buses that are slower than walking. Thanks, Kathy.
