It’s nice not to be the first to do something since you can steal their ideas learn from their experience. Which is why I was so excited to discover Transportation Alternatives which is pretty much exactly what I’m trying to move towards here only on a slightly different scale. Okay, not slightly, completely:

Our Mission is to reclaim New York City’s streets from the automobile, and to advocate for bicycling, walking and public transit as the best transportation alternatives.

They started in 1973, have 5500 members, ten full-time and four part-time staff, and an annual budget of over a million dollars. Wow!

I’m looking forward to mining through their extensive web site.
