  • Making Space for a Low-Emissions Future: 80 X 50 and the Challenge for Transportation
    March 20, 2017
    6:30pm - 8:00pm

    Register (Free) 

    New York City’s strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% by the year 2050 provides both a challenge and an opportunity for the world of transportation. What is certain is that in order to reach this goal, New York City will have to dramatically shift away from personal car usage to more sustainable modes.

    But in a city of 8.6 million people and counting, where streets have long been designed for private cars instead of people, where do we begin to claim road space for a low- (and no-) emissions future? How can we both incentivize low-emission travel and pursue designs and policies that discourage driving? Low-emissions zones, car-free streets, car-free days, parking reform, and restrictions on high-emission vehicles can all move the needle on climate change as well as influence how we think about street space.
