Mayor Bill de Blasio today signed new safe streets legislation into law, the latest step in the Administration's progress implementing Vison Zero to make New York City's streets safer. The legislation was introduced by Speaker Corey Johnson.
Regional Plan Association is a proud supporter of this bill because it will bring safer, less polluting, and more affordable transportation to our growing city. This critical piece of legislation mandates construction of 250 miles of protected cycling lanes and 150 miles of protected bus lanes, along with many other necessary street safety improvements, on New York City streets over the next five years. We look forward to working with the NYC Department of Transportation and City Council as implementation proceeds."
