Safe Streets Austin has arrived

Thursday, April 21, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

A group of seasoned multimodal advocates have joined up to create a new nonprofit aimed at building “a movement to transform Austin’s streets, bikeways and trails into safe, vibrant and equitable places for people of all ages and abilities to walk, bike, roll and gather.” The group, named Safe Streets Austin, is the result of merging Bike Austin, Walk Austin and Vision Zero ATX into one group that will advocate for safe, multimodal transportation in Austin. The group announced itself earlier this week, saying, “Austin is widely recognized as a dynamic, world-class city. As it grows in size and complexity, the need for a resilient, responsive transportation system has become a necessity. Austin, like most American cities, is largely automobile-centric, creating undue challenges for many community members, especially those that lack economic resources. A robust and safe active transportation system would offer better choices for all Austinites.” Find more information about Safe Streets Austin on its website.
