ADVOCACY OPPORTUNITY: Take action to reverse the Mayor’s transportation cuts

The Mayor’s FY24 proposed budget wants to remove the only dedicated funding source for Vision Zero programming, and a key source of funding for future bike, bus and pedestrian projects. 

2024 is the year the Mayor designated as the year DC gets to zero traffic deaths and serious injuries. We’re nowhere close, and now is not the time to scale back funding for key transportation bills.
