1. What is the most unsafe aspect of the current transportation system in your district/in the city, and what do you propose be done to improve the situation? 

2. We know that lack of physical activity leads to overweight, which leads to rising health care costs.  How would you make it easier for people to incorporate physical activity into their everyday activities by making it significantly easier for Boston residents to move around their communities by foot or by bicycle? What would you do to encourage the Safe Routes To School program or other ways to increase the number of children who walk or bike to school?  What would you do to make it safer for seniors to walk or bike on our sidewalks and across our streets?

What would you do to help get increased public transportation services in your district/city?  In particular, how would you help bring rapid transit to the large sections of Roxbury and Dorchester that currently lack it?

4. How would you apply "complete streets" design concepts, already being discussed by city agencies, that meet the needs of all travel modes including bicycle, pedestrian, transit, and automobiles, to all city streets, rather than just to those being repaired?  How would you prioritize which streets are to be dealt with first?

Street space is the largest physical asset owned by the city.  Devoting almost all of it to car traffic has a major impact on neighborhood quality of life.  On what streets would you propose that pedestrian and cyclist use be prioritized, for example through the creation of temporary "cyclovias" that only allow non-motorized travel, or more permanent "shared spaces" and "bike boulevards" that allow cars but at reduced speeds?

6. Currently, it is technically illegal to ride a bike in city parks; and many neighborhood parks are underutilized.  What would you do to increase access to parks by foot or bike or public transportation, and to facilitate cycling in the parks?

Better parking management is even more of a need in many commercial centers than more parking spaces. Reduced parking requirements (in zoning ordinances), Parking Benefit Districts, and other market based policies that price city-owned curb parking to reflect market rates are methods that can help to alleviate parking congestion and shortages. How would you better manage commercial parking areas in your district/in the city?

How would you leverage opportunities for Federal stimulus funding to create a more "active transportation" infrastructure in our city?  What federal programs do you consider most able to be used for this purpose?

Many bicyclists feel under assault on Boston roads and many drivers view bicyclist as serious nuisances. How would you address the attitudes of drivers and bicyclists to promote a more civil atmosphere of road sharing and cooperation on city streets? How would you incorporate driver and bicycle training programs into the educational system of your district/city?

How do you personally get around the city?  Please give percentages for walking, bicycling, public transportation, and automobile.
