Support Better Biking in Greater New Orleans
Become a Bike Easy Member today!
Connect the Crescent is a 3-month “pop-up” demonstration to engage the community in a conversation around how our streets can be transformed quickly, inexpensively, safely and equitably for everyone in and around our city. 71,000 jobs are located in downtown New Orleans, accounting for almost 40% of the city’s total jobs! Over 50% of these jobs pay less than $40,000 a year, making equitable transportation critical to the livability of New Orleans as a whole. That’s what Connect the Crescent is designed to do: make our streets accessible, affordable, safe, and comfortable for everyone to travel daily.
We’ve had an incredibly positive response from people on the street and through surveys about their experiences using Connect the Crescent. However, there is still work to be done. Connect the Crescent is a temporary demonstration which means it’s protected features will be removed by mid-December. Stay tuned for opportunities to help Bike Easy return the bikeways to their previous conditions.
Let your voice be heard, renew your Bike Easy Membership today to show support for safer walking, improved transit, and protected bikeways.
Bike Easy will continue to advocate through grassroots organizing and community dialogue to ensure that elected officials and decision-makers prioritize safe and accessible bicycling.
