The parade will follow a 6.5-mile loop which begins at Hofstra University and then circles through scenic Eisenhower Park before returning.  Part of the parade will be on-road, but there will be a police escort. There will be a shorter 1.2-mile loop for participants on foot, those with small children, or those who simply preferred a shorter ride.

Achieving Accessibility

In a major shift, New York City Transit President Andy Byford’s Fast Forward plan aims to make every subway station accessible by 2034. With congestion pricing and other revenue sources secured in this year’s state budget, the agency should have the means to deliver. What can New York learn from its peers that are delivering for riders with disabilities?

Join TransitCenter & NYC Transit as we host senior accessibility officials from Chicago CTA and Boston MBTA, two agencies forging ahead on subway station accessibility and elevator reliability.

Special Guest
New York City Transit President Andy Byford

Panelists
Alex Elegudin, Senior Advisor for Systemwide Accessibility, New York City Transit
Sonali Tandon, Senior Project Manager, Chicago Transit Authority
Laura Brelsford, Assistant General Manager for Systemwide Accessibility, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority

Rights in Transit: Public Transportation & the Right to the City

Rights in Transit: Public Transportation & the Right to the City

  • CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
unnamed.jpg

Is public transportation a right? Should it be? For those reliant on public transit, the answer is invariably “yes” to both. For those who lack other means of mobility, transit is a lifeline. It offers access to many of the entitlements we take as essential: food, employment, and democratic public life itself.

Rights in Transit offers a direct challenge to contemporary scholarship on transportation equity. Rather than focusing on civil rights alone, Rights in Transit argues for engaging the more radical notion of the right to the city.

Rally for Renewables!

We'll be rallying on the boardwalk in front of the Allegria Hotel (80 West Broadway).

We’re calling on Governor Cuomo to prevent climate catastrophe by stopping fossil fuel pipelines and power plants, moving to 100 percent renewable energy, and making corporate polluters pay.

Long Island can lead the way with good jobs in off-shore wind and solar power, by stopping the Caithness II power plant in Brookhaven, and by opposing the Williams pipeline off the Rockaways.

Sponsoring organizations (list in formation): New York Communities for Change, Food & Water Watch, NYPIRG, Surfrider, Long Island Progressive Coalition, the Sierra Club, All Our Energy and Long Island Streets.
