This Week: Transit Love, Taxis and TOD

Posted By Streetsblog On February 14, 2011 @ 2:56 pm In Livable Streets Events | No Comments

Start your week off by sending a valentine to New York’s transit system, and then enjoy some intellectual conversation about the future of the taxi and the promise of transit-oriented development.

Today: Happy Valentine’s Day. Join Transportation Alternatives, the Transit Workers Union, WE ACT for Environmental Justice and the Straphanger’s Campaign at three different subway stations to sign a valentine [1] expressing your love for our transit system, which they’ll deliver to Albany. 4:30 p.m.

Tuesday: TLC Commissioner David Yassky sits down [2] with NYU’s Mitchell Moss to discuss the future of taxis in New York City. 8:30 a.m.

Also Tuesday: T.A.’s East Side committee continues to attend local police precinct community councils [3], this time the East Village’s 9th precinct, and make the case for traffic enforcement targeted at the deadliest road users: dangerous drivers. 7:00 p.m.

Wednesday: Columbia urban planning professor David King talks transit-oriented development [4], clean air and climate change with NYMTC, New York’s metropolitan planning organization. 12:00 p.m.
