Our Vision

A city where anybody can:

  • Safely and efficiently walk, cycle, take public transit, or use other sustainable and less costly modes of transportation,
  • Have a say, through democratic and transparent processes, in how the city and streets are designed and funded, and
  • Experience a high quality of life.

Our Mission

To advocate for transportation equity that enhances quality of life and opportunities for everyone to live, work, and play.

We achieve our mission through information and engagement with members and the public, influencing policies and decision-making related to transportation and land use design, and monitoring transportation policies and plans and their implementation.

Our Values

We value safety, transparency, sustainability, democratic engagement, and equity for all transportation users.
