Please join our growing group of T.A. Brooklyn-based volunteers at our next meeting. Meet like-minded people who want to be involved in their communities and see what we’ve achieved so far. Our goal is to establish a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists, on every street and in every neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Brooklyn is fortunate to already have more than 100 miles of bike lanes, vast access to mass transit, and a strong base of livable streets advocates. However, none of it can be taken for granted; there are still many improvements needed borough wide. After several years of reduced activity, the Brooklyn Committee of Transportation Alternatives has been re-energized, more than doubling its membership and diving into issues big and small to create a safer environment for all street users.
Harnessing the revitalized spirit, the volunteer committee voted on key goals for 2009. Projects range from spearheading already established events such as the Tour de Brooklyn to creating entirely new ones like a Brooklyn-centric membership drive in June that will follow T.A.’s citywide May Bike Month. Other efforts include pushing for a Car Free Prospect Park, bringing new protected bike lanes to Brooklyn, working with the Department of Transportation to place bike racks in bulk across underserved community boards, and providing bike valet at the Celebrate Brooklyn summer arts series.
