Connecting land-use and transportation is key to building vibrant and sustainable communities. We aim to move away from focusing solely on cars and instead having multiple transportation options that allow citizens to walk, bike and take public transit. Neighborhoods that have more transportation choice have cleaner air, emit less climate-change inducing carbon and are healthier places to live.
We are working on the following focus areas:
- Highway reform – advocating for increased transparency and accountability in highway construction.
- Transportation funding reform – increased funding for public transit, biking and walking.
- Travel Demand Management – designing strategies to reduce the use of cars and prevent roadway congestion.
- Public transit initiatives – lobbying for increased transit connectivity across the state.
