Save transit, End Traffic: a Bold new Plan

Last fall the Cobble Hill Association invited transportation advocates to the general meeting to present their Move NY plan, a proposal to increase fairness across the city's bridge tolls but reduce vehicle congestion. The plan was well received and soon after the CHA executive board officially endorsed it. Now, ten other nearby civic groups have endorsed it too and together we are all sponsoring a Town Hall style forum for former Department of Transition Commissioner Sam Schwartz to present it before a larger audience on February 19th. See the flyer above and join your neighbors to learn more about this potential plan that could benefit drivers and straphangers alike.
