Safety is at the heart of our work at the Transportation division. At the end of the day, we want to make sure people can get home whether they’re walking, driving, bicycling, or riding public transit. We are focused on creating a transportation network that serves people of all ages and abilities – from our youngest to our oldest travelers and everyone in between.
We employ several methods to make our streets safer for people walking, bicycling or taking public transit. Browse the cards and links below to learn more.
