Sustainable Streets Strategic Plan for the New York City Department of Transportation, 2008
5 minutes Date Enacted: Jan 1, 2008
The strategic plan laid out, for the first time ever, a clear and detailed transportation policy for New York City—one that promised a new direction. NYC DOT is delivering on the promises of its plan, and is moving forward on every one of the 164 actions committed to in Sustainable Streets. It also sets forth new goals that have emerged during the past year, ranging from development of an internal NYC DOT car-sharing system to further reduce NYC DOT’s fleet, parking needs and miles driven, to issuing a request for proposals to establish a large scale public bicycle system in New York, similar to those in Paris and other cities.
