Where to Next? Fossil-Free Transportation in a Pandemic and Beyond

7 to 8:30 pm on Zoom

Register here

Transportation is the #2 source of greenhouse gas emissions in New York City. We have the nation’s most extensive subway system and the slowest bus service. With the Covid-19 pandemic comes a new set of mass transit woes. But bicycling is surging, and a whole slew of New Yorkers are avoiding the commute altogether as they check into work via Zoom.  How can we get our troubled public transit system back on track and headed where we need to go—in a climate-friendly way?

This event will feature a discussion with Vanessa Barrios of the Regional Plan Association, Dulcie Canton of Transportation Alternatives, Allison Considine of the Sierra Club, and Renae Reynolds of the NYC-Environmental Justice Alliance, led by journalist Emily Nonko.
