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.
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.
- Responses to questionnaires from StreetsPAC and Transportation Alternatives;
- Streetsblog’s coverage of Democratic debates in August and September, and a Republican debate in August;
- Our coverage of candidate forums on transportation and sustainability in February, April, and June.
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.)
