Thank you to the staff in the 10 grantee cities for your dedication to completing bold projects in just six months, and for being teachers and learners with your peers in that time. Thank you to the embedded partners who have been working tirelessly to support your communities long before the pandemic arrived and have adapted quickly to the extreme challenges of the past two years. Thank you to transportation justice experts Tamika L. Butler and Naomi Doerner, who contributed invaluable thought leadership and support to NACTO staff and the grantees throughout this project.

Finally, thank you to Bloomberg Philanthropies for your generous funding to make this initiative possible.


NACTO is an association of 92 major North American cities and transit agencies formed to exchange transportation ideas, insights, and practices to cooperatively approach national transportation issues.
NACTO’s mission is to build cities as places for people, with safe, sustainable, accessible, and equitable transportation choices that support a strong economy and vibrant quality of life. We do this by:

  • Building the Movement: Communicating a bold vision for 21st century urban mobility and building strong leadership capacity among city transportation officials.
  • Advancing a Unified City Voice: Empowering a coalition of cities to lead the way on transportation policy at the local, state, and national levels.
  • Accelerating Change: Raising the state of the practice for street design that prioritizes people walking, biking, and taking transit.
