A collective effort of the City of New Haven Department of Transportation, Traffic and Parking, CTrides, the New Haven/León Sister City Project, Yale Transportation Options, New Haven Healthy City/Healthy Climate Challenge, and more, goNHgo brings together organizations and individuals to use active transportation options. We and our partners utilize our resources and relationships with employees and employers to promote alternative transit use.
