Last night, the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Intermodal Transportation (GACIT) held a hearing in Manchester for the Draft 2023-2032 Ten Year Plan. QC Bike Collective joined the Bike-Walk Alliance of New Hampshire and others to speak up for safer streets.
Tammy Zamoyski, Communications & Support Co-Manager spoke during the public comment period. She stated: “Transportation plays such a huge role in our daily lives. We all have places to go- work, school, medical appointments, shopping trips and social functions. However, not everyone has the same access to transportation. Many people in Manchester do not drive, whether for financial reasons, physical or mental limitations, environmental concerns or other reasons. As we look to attract a younger workforce and create livable communities for those wishing to age in place, we must design our streets to prioritize the safety of our most vulnerable road users. We need more funding for alternative forms of transportation, prioritizing low income areas where car ownership is disproportionately low.”
