Take Action
T.A. Bronx, Brooklyn & Central Park Committees Need You!

T.A.'s neighborhood and special issue committees work for T.A.'s vision for a more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly NYC in particular areas in the city. Whether you're a good talker, writer, lifter or organizer or are just interested in seeing what's going on, the committees need you. Join them and help spread the good word and meet interesting people. E-mail volunteer@transalt.org, call 212-629-8080 or contact the committee directly (see below).


Bronx Committee
Meet other people who love the Bronx just as much as you. Help us re-open the Highbridge Bridge, reinstate car-free Sundays on the Grand Concourse, win a new segment of the Hudson River Greenway in Riverdale Park and make other pedestrian and cycling safety improvements. And, of course, become a part of the fantastic Tour de Bronx! Bronx@transalt.org or 718-653-2203.
