Since 2008, the Rockefeller Foundation has been engaged in a multi-million dollar transportation initiative aimed at influencing sustainable and equitable local, state and federal transportation policy. In pursuit of this goal, the Foundation has invested in public transit projects that it believes determines the shape of our communities, our access to jobs and services, and how much time/money we spend on getting around. Acknowledging that the U.S. is at a tipping point for change in transportation policy, as more people are living in cities and choosing public transportation over driving, the Foundation has begun to explore low cost, high impact mass transit proposals – specifically, BRT. The Foundation’s goal is to overcome the uneven history of BRT in the U.S., as few American cities have managed to turn the concept into a reality, while cities around the world currently have high-quality BRT systems. The Foundation is supporting the BRT for NYC Steering Committee to achieve this goal.
