Ben doesn’t own a car and relies on public transit. That’s why he advocated to make commutes faster by opening the 2nd Avenue Subway, wining two ferry stops, and expanding bikeshare, Select Bus Service, bus lanes, and bike lanes. Ben also knows that streets must be safe for pedestrian and cyclists, and he's won new safe streets infrastructure and a bike safety program.
As Borough President, Ben will continue making commutes faster and streets safer by
- reducing the number of vehicles entering Manhattan,
- investing in public transit, and
- expanding his safe streets and bike safety program to protect pedestrians across the borough.
