In addition to promoting a greener earth through walking, cycling and public transportation, one of Transportation Alternatives’ most significant missions is achieving Vision Zero: eliminating pedestrian-vehicular injuries and deaths on the New York City streets.

Every year, an estimated 4,000 New Yorkers will be injured and another 250 will be killed in traffic-related accidents: every two hours a pedestrian is at risk.

Since 2014, Transportation Alternatives has joined forces with Vision Zero to create safer bike lanes and routes, campaigning for safer intersections in neighborhoods, and making stricter laws against drivers causing injuries when the pedestrian has the right of way.
