  • Fast track already present municipal initiatives for safety such as: adding safe intersections for cyclists, daytime/nighttime parking solutions, taxi relief/delivery zones.
  • Following multiple car related deaths of precarious workers delivering food, prioritize delivery personnel in green zone lanes in the short term, while working towards having a living wage and extended for all workers, documented and undocumented.
  • Prioritize bike lane maintenance and clearing, especially during snow falls to allow workers who are cyclists equal access transportation.
  • Provide greenzone safety lanes for e-bikes on the Hudson River Greenway and other relevant routes and rescind the criminalization of e-bike use on the Greenway for delivery workers.
