TransAlt is the official app of #BikeNYC, created by the non-profit organization Transportation Alternatives to provide you with news about local protests and group bike rides, connect you to local activism for new bike lanes and safer streets, and deliver your daily bicycling forecast, written by New York City’s own Bike Snob, with the weather, road conditions, and more.

Transportation Alternatives is New York City’s advocate for biking, walking, and public transportation, and our mission is to reclaim New York City’s street from the automobile. For over forty years, we have been making streets safer for biking and walking, and fighting for public transportation that is reliable and efficient. We are backed by 150,000 supporters and 8,000 dues-paying members.

The TransAlt App is your key to unlocking the potential of New York City’s transportation network. Here you will find everything you need to #BikeNYC, including:

Daily Bike Forecast. Get the weather, learn about road conditions, and more. Written by author and blogger Bike Snob, this daily forecast does more than help you decide whether or not to ride today. It’s also packed with jokes, ride guides, tips, and great ideas for new NYC bike adventures.

Activist News. Don’t miss the next group bike ride, local protest, or critically important activist meeting. The app will keep be you up-to-date about everything cool on a bike near you.

Local Campaigns. Be one of the thousands of activists fighting for new bike lanes and safe streets. Get involved from your phone, and you can take action right away.

Tip Line. Spot a gaping pothole, a car in the bike lane, a ticket sting, or anything else that TransAlt needs to know? Use the tip line to tell us what’s up while you’re out on your bike. We’re listening!
