Strategic Plan 2016:
Safe · Green · Smart · Equitable

New York City is bigger and more bustling than ever and the strains on our transportation system are evident to all who live, work, and visit here: Sidewalks are overflowing, subway trains are packed, and our streets are full of pedestrians, cyclists, cars, trucks, and taxis. NYC DOT’s Strategic Plan 2016 is our response to these and other challenges. The plan reiterates our commitment to improving traffic safety and public health, expanding travel choices for all New Yorkers, supporting the City’s efforts to fight climate change, doubling cycling, and maintaining our streets and bridges in a state of good repair.
