March 13th Advocacy Day – New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT)

New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT)

NYBC has joined with Parks & Trails NY (PTNY) and Tri-State Transportation Campaign (TSTC) and other bicycle-pedestrian advocates to form New Yorkers for Active Transportation (NY4AT), a coalition dedicated to working with stakeholders to assure equitable funding for non‐motorized transportation, including complete streets, community multi‐use trails, and safer and increased levels of bicycling and walking in New York’s cities, villages, and towns.

Join us for NY4AT Advocacy Day March 13

Legislative Breakfast
8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.
Fort Orange Club
110 Washington Avenue

The national advocacy group Transportation for America (T4America) will kick off the day with a program, Making the Most of MAP-21, designed to help lawmakers and advocates better take advantage of the new federal transportation legislation.  We’re inviting New York’s senators and assemblypersons as MAP-21 has given states, and therefore our legislators, much greater control over which transportation programs will receive fundingRegistration is required by March 11.  Cost for the breakfast is $10, payable at the door.

Legislator Visits
10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

After breakfast, walk half a block to the Capitol and Legislative Office Building to make the case for continued funding for active transportation.  You will be assigned to a team with fellow advocates who will join you in meetings with policymakers throughout the day. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required by March 11.  For those not attending the breakfast, a meeting place and brief orientation will be arranged.

This is your chance to tell your representatives and other key committee members how important trails, sidewalks, bike lanes, complete streets, and safe routes to school programs are to the economy, quality of life, and health of the citizens of your village and town.

Participants will have lunch on their own or with their team in the Capitol or in the Empire State Plaza Concourse located below the LOB and Capitol. See restaurants.

NY4AT supports:

• Dedicated bicycle-pedestrian infrastructure funding

In a memo to the Governor’s transportation staff, NY4AT has requested:

  • a budget line in the Executive Budget dedicated to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure,

  • assurance that all or a clearly established percentage of the federal Transportation Alternatives funds will be dedicated to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.

• Inclusion of bicycling and walking in NYSDOT’s Two-Year Capital Plan

In a letter to NYSDOT Commissioner Joan McDonald, PTNY, NYBC, and TSTC called for NYSDOT’s Two-Year Capital Plan to include walking and bicycling as part of the state’s transportation system.

• Release of up to $50 million in Transportation Enhancements Program (TEP) funds

As much as $30-50 million of TEP dollars may still remain. NYSDOT should make these dollars available as soon as possible to local governments to fund trails and bicycle and pedestrian projects.

• Re-establishment of the state bike-ped advisory committee

NY4AT urges NYSDOT to re-establish the state bicycle-pedestrian advisory committee as a means of gathering input from stakeholders as well as helping disseminate information about the new Transportation Alternatives program.

• Continued funding for trails and bike-ped projects

In an August letter to Governor Cuomo, PTNY urged immediate action to ensure continued robust funding for trail and bike and pedestrian-oriented projects in NYS.  The letter was-developed with our partners, NYBC and TSTC, and co-signed by almost 100 organizations and municipalities.

In addition, almost 600 trail advocates responded to PTNY’s call for postcards to let the Governor know of the importance of the Recreational Trails Program.
