About Capital Coexist

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, a former communications and design firm in downtown Albany. 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.

Bicycle & Pedestrian Education Series

CDTC has purchased a series of webinars and educational opportunities which it is offering to Capital District public and private sector planners, engineers, and designers at no cost. CDTC offers webinars developed by the Association of Pedestrian & Bicycle Professionals (APBP), Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), Pedestrian & Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), and Transportation Research Board (TRB) throughout the year. The webinars are valuable and informative in advancing transportation planning and engineering in the Capital Region. Professional development and continuing education credits are available to those who attend the webinars at CDTC. The schedule will be updated as new educational opportunities are announced.

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.

CDTC is now accepting applications for the 2019 mini-grant program. Interested project sponsors are encouraged to review the project gallery of previously funded projects and other resources.
