Sustainable Princeton (SP) has consistently highlighted the importance of bicycling to the Princeton community and its future. “Choosing to take a bus, ride a bike, or walk rather than drive a car, is an act of hope for our future,” SP noted in a May 15 statement. “The ability to choose how you move is a privilege, and even if you are car-dependent you can still play a crucial role in helping make the road safe for cyclists. Everyone plays a role in making our community safe and keeping it that way for future generations of Princetonians.”
The SP statement went on, “In addition to being a fun and more affordable/accessible way of transportation for many Princetonians, biking plays a key role in helping our community reach Princeton’s Climate Action Plan goals. To truly reduce our community’s greenhouse gas emissions, we need to reduce overall miles traveled by vehicles, and that includes electric vehicles. As a community-based nonprofit, we make a point to promote carbon-free commuting at our annual eCommuter Fest, and we’ve enjoyed partnering with the Princeton Pedestrian Bicycle Advisory Committee (PBAC) and others to offer bike valet parking at community events.”
