Welcome to Transport Troy!
Transport Troy is a group of active citizens that care about making Troy accessible to all residents regardless of their preferred method of transit. We believe that in order for Troy to be competitive, to attract new residents of all ages, and to retain current residents and families, Troy will need to make a meaningful commitment to walkability.
Transport Troy made the first step in making Troy a more walkable city by helping to pass a Complete Streets Ordinance for the city, which received final approval on May 22, 2014. The work done was impressive enough that the ordinance was awarded 2nd best in the nation by Smart Growth America. You can read more about the award here and here.
Since 2013, Transport Troy has organized the Collar City Ramble, an alternative transportation festival, which explores Troy by alternate means. The PreRamble serves to build awareness around Transport Troy's work in developing the Collar City Ramble. For more information on the Collar City Ramble please visit:

“We fully anticipate the growth that we have seen over the last few years to continue, therefore, it is important that we plan accordingly and take into account everyone’s collective needs when making decisions about our future.” -Former Troy Mayor Lou Rosamilia
