Our friend, Laura Adams, who heads up Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, sent us this interesting video from EMBARQ: the WRI Center for Sustainable Transport, so we’re sharing it here:

Watch our latest video documentary about New York City’s recent initiatives to improve bicycling infrastructure, public space and bus rapid transit, made successful under the leadership of urban leaders like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan.

Watch the video here:

The video is the most recent installment of EMBARQ’s “Cities in Focus” series that documents best practices of sustainable transport in three- to five-minute videos of cities like Los Angeles, Istanbul, Mexico City, Curitiba and Mumbai.

The video premiered last week at a recent panel discussion, hosted by EMBARQ in Washington, D.C.
