Bicycle Month – March in Florida and May nationwide – provides an excellent opportunity for people to reconsider two-wheeled transportation.
Influence Communications will be working directly with the Florida Department of Transportation and local municipalities to help promote more, safer cycling through the implementation of open streets programs, improved intergovernmental communication, and direct engagement of local bicycling and running businesses and organizations.
What are Open Streets?
Open Streets, originally called ciclovia, are weekly events in much of the Americas. The idea is to encourage community integration, walking, and bicycling by temporarily transforming public streets into linear public park space. Our own Kathryn Moore, in addition to her work in public engagement strategies, is an expert in the field of active transportation policy, promotion and implementation, having traveled and spoken in support of these programs across the United States and Latin America.
Now, together with the Influence team, Kathryn is providing her expertise to the City of Miami Beach and Miami-Dade County. If you’re in Miami-Dade or Monroe Counties and think your city should consider ‘open streets,’ contact us today at (305) 741-3051 or via email.
