Capital Coexist is a localized bicycle and pedestrian safety campaign developed in response to feedback received after completing the Albany Bicycle Master Plan. The campaign was launched in the spring of 2010 with a website, graphics and local photography by Zone 5, an Albany-based communications and design firm. The Capital Coexist website should be used as a bicycle and pedestrian safety resource clearinghouse for the Capital Region. It has safety tips for bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers, as well as information about current bicycle and pedestrian-related transportation projects, events and educational materials.
Capital Coexist Traffic Safety Ambassador Program
The Traffic Safety Ambassador Program a/k/a Capital Coexist "Mini-Grants" was first launched in 2016. The program funds projects that: 1) improve bicycle and pedestrian safety by reducing the number of vehicle crashes involving bicyclists and pedestrians, and 2) increase the number of bicycle and pedestrian trips (especially commuting trips) in the Capital Region. Any local government agency, certified first responder, 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, and private for-profit organization within the CDTC-area is eligible to apply.
