Auto-Free New York!

For far too long, New Yorkers have lacked a formal organization dedicated to advocating for serious transit investments. Now, just such a group has formed. At our next meeting of Auto-Free New York, John Raskin, executive director of the Riders Alliance, will describe this grassroots transit advocacy organization. The Riders Alliance is off to a vigorous start, and will hold its first event next Monday, November 19th. This much needed initiative fills a major vacuum, since the demise of the Committee for Better Transit after the passing of its founder Steve Dobrow more than ten years ago. Steve was a member of the vision42 Advisory Committee.
