The crowds came out at the Transportation Review Board’s annual meeting for a session with the words “livability” and “walking and bicycling” in the title. The full title was “Livability Initiatives: Building Upon Walking and Bicycling Successes.” Maybe it was the star power of New York’s Janette Sadik Khan, who was replaced at the last minute by Linda Bailey, New York City’s Federal Programs Adviser. Maybe livability is now the magic word. In any event, I imagine the organizers will book a larger room for bicycling and walking issues next year.
