Syracuse Speaks-Transportation and Mobility

Max Mimaroglu
Centro Bus Hub downtown Syracuse. (2/11/22)

People in the Syracuse area have challenges when it comes to getting around. For one thing, just about 30% of households don’t have a car. In fact, Syracuse ranks as 12th on a list of citieswith the lowest car ownership. That makes it more challenging to get to work, shuttle kids to school or other events, or make health care visits.

It also makes good transportation infrastructure such as buses, sidewalks, bike lanes, and maybe even E-scooters all the more important. On this Syracuse Speaks, we take a look at what kind of planning and projects are going on in the area.

Joining us for this discussion:

  • Peter Sarver, from the Moving People Coalition of ACTS
  • Megan Vitale, Principal Transportation Planner at the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council
  • Neil Burke, City of Syracuse Director of Special Projects and Transportation Planner
  • Chris Tuff, Centro Deputy CEO
