Long Island Transportation Alliance (the organization formerly known as Car-Less Long Island) will be holding its 4th Annual Long Island Bike Parade on September 21, 2019, during Long Island Mobility Week.
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.
More info including maps will be linked to soon.

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.

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.
2019 Transit Awareness Day Registration Open!
NYPTA, in partnership with the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, is pleased to once again bring the transit community together in support of a unified message on the importance of a strong state investment in public transportation.
