Mobility Platform For Cuyahoga County Released

As part of a coalition of mobility-focused organizations, Bike Cleveland submitted a set of policy recommendations to the new County administration. The platform, put together by Bike Cleveland, Clevelanders for Public Transit (CPT), ADA Cleveland, Maximum Accessible Housing (MAHO), Youth Challenge, and Northern Ohioans for Budget Legislation Equality (NOBLE), includes policies related to land use, public space, funding for alternative transportation, and administrative changes.

High-quality, safe, accessible, and connected transportation keeps our county running whether it’s a CMSD student riding a bike to school, a downtown retail employee taking the Healthline to get to their job, or a wheelchair user riding paratransit to get to a doctor’s appointment. Mobility is critical to a healthy Cuyahoga and we look forward to working with the new administration to get it right.

In a county where 12% of residents do not have access to a private vehicle, and even more households are sharing one car, other modes of transportation must be affordable, reliable, accessible, and safe.

The coalition looks forward to working with the new county executive and his leadership team to advance these important mobility and transportation priorities. View the full platform here.
