Locals Attend Transportation Conference

On Friday, November 18 the Transportation 2030: A Five Borough Blueprint was held at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan hosted by Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer. In attendance were Danny Ruscillo and Joe Hartigan (in photo) along with more than 500 residents from all five boroughs. There were many representatives from various city agencies and organizations. Commissioner of the Department of Transportation, Janette Sadik-Khan, and Executive Director Chris Ward of the New York and New Jersey Port Authority were present. First there was a morning presentation, then breakout sessions in the afternoon. Participants were able to choose among five different breakout sessions on a host of pressing New York City transit issues. The conference’s plenary panel engaged leaders from business, government, and community groups in a debate about how to finance transit projects in New York. The five afternoon breakout sessions were, “Parking Reform and Reducing Congestion,” “Filling the Gap in the Transit Map: Tackling the Two-Fare Zone and Transportation Deserts,” “The 6th Borough: Utilizing New York City’s Waterways,” “Sharing the Street: Bike Lanes, Bus Rapid Transit and Other Street Redesigns” and “Safe Streets for All: Accessibility, Design and Enforcement.”
