This election year we have a chance not just to improve transportation policy, but to improve the transportation policymakers who represent us in state government.
To better advance our mission, we urge you to support the candidates who will become great leaders for bicycling and transportation justice in California.
We asked candidates five questions. Their answers tell us if they value, as we do, (1) empowering the Air Resources Board charged with protecting our air and climate with more influence over transportation decisions; (2) fully funding the active transportation projects waiting to make our cities more livable; (3) prioritizing the low-income communities of color across California who bear the biggest burdens of neglected investment, pollution, and unsafe streets; (4) supporting complete streets so that all of our streets become safer for biking and walking whenever they are repaved; and (5) supporting with subsidies the cleanest and healthiest "electric vehicle," the e-bike.

Our Candidate Response Scorecard is a quick reference guide to the well-thought out responses to our candidate questionnaire; we judged candidates to have earned 3 points per issue if we graded their responses as those of a full-on safe streets advocate with a deep understanding of transportation & ideas for legislation they want to advance; candidates with 2 points per issue are dependable safe streets supporters, and candidates with 1 point per issue are safe streets supporters who could use some more engagement from voters and advocates to help them engage with the issues and develop their own solutions.
