NYC DOT is committed to improving traffic safety and public health, expanding travel choices for all New Yorkers, and supporting the City’s efforts to fight climate change. Mayor Bill de Blasio has framed the central element of the City’s transportation policy to be Vision Zero, which seeks to reduce to

Biking and bike share can provide affordable
transportation options, especially for lower income people who have poor access to transit.
