Transportation Justice

In 2011, Hunter College Master of Urban Planning students reported their findings from a yearlong research project Equity Participation in Bicycle Planning. Theteam of students worked with the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) Bicycle Program to recommend improvements to the planning, implementation and location of bicycle infrastructure in New York City. Dr. Tom Angotti, Director of CCPD, served as faculty advisor for the group of students. The report  highlights the lack of bicycle infrastructure in traditionally underserved areas outside of the core of Manhattan and northwest Brooklyn and the need for inclusive bicycle planning in neighborhoods and with community boards.  The report includes recommendations to more equitably distribute bicycle infrastructure in the city and incorporate bicycle planning within the city’s Complete Streets approach.
