Communities United for Transportation Equity
COMMUTE is a coalition of New York City community groups that initially came together in 2007 to make congestion pricing work for working families, by advocating for the use of congestion pricing revenues to finance mass-transit investments benefiting underserved communities and low-income commuters.
COMMUTE is now continuing its work to promote mass-transit investments for inadequately served low-income New Yorkers. The Pratt Center is coordinating COMMUTE and providing supporting research.
COMMUTE members include:
- Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens
- Centro Hispano Cuzcatlán
- El Puente
- Erasmus Neighborhood Federation
- Fifth Avenue Committee
- Nos Quedamos, Inc.
- The POINT CDC/ACTION
- Sustainable South Bronx
- United Community Centers
- Washington Heights Club of the Working Families Party
- Morningside Heights/West Harlem Sanitation Coalition
- Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice
COMMUTE has collaborated with the Pratt Center to develop a plan for a citywide Bus Rapid Transit network
