Thank you to over 100 volunteers, a great organizing team, our event sponsors and the community for making the fifth Streets Alive! a success!

The fifth Streets Alive! Ithaca event was held on Sunday, September 7th 2014 from 1-5pm on S. Plain Street and Wood Street in Ithaca’s Southside neighborhood.

Streets Alive! Ithaca is a nonprofit, biannual celebration of a street closed to cars and open to people. The main focus of the event is enjoying a street open for people to bike, walk, roll and move. It’s an invitation to be active and to explore alternative ways of moving around in the city.

About the event hosts:

Bike Walk Tompkins 501c(3) mission is to change the culture and infrastructure of the Ithaca area so that people embrace sustainable transportation, especially walking and bicycling, in their everyday lives. We work to advocate, educate, and motivate for more trips done by bike and foot. Bike Walk Tompkins is a project of the Center for Transformative Action (CTA).

Way2Go, a program of Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, is transforming the culture of transportation among users, providers and decision makers, so that everyone can get where they need to go in a fair and sustainable community. Way2Go works collaboratively through events, workshops and education to help people save money, stress less, and go green on transportation.
