In 2015, the NYC DOT and NYPD developed a set of Pedestrian Safety Action Plans, one for each borough. Each plan analyzes the unique conditions of each borough and recommends actions to address pedestrian safety. Bedford-Stuyvesant/ Ocean Hill - Brownsville has a number of intersections and corridors highlighted in this report.
Safe Streets for Seniors is a pedestrian safety initiative for older New Yorkers. The initiative studies crash data, conducts outreach and develops & implements mitigation measures to improve safety for seniors and all road users alike. Bedford-Stuyvesant/ Ocean Hill - Brownsville was recently added as a Senior Pedestrian Focus Area in 2017.
In 2017, the MTA and DOT released the Bus Forward Plan, aimed to improving bus service by making it faster and more reliable. A corridor targeted for improvement is Malcolm X Blvd, located in the southern portion of Bed-Stuy.
In 2016, DOT released Don't Cut Corners, a report aimed to explain why left turns were more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. This report spurred the creation of a new program called "Left Turn Traffic Calming", which uses paint and other materials to change how motorists are making left turns.
Safer Cycling was a report made in 2017 in collabration with the NYPD and the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene. This report describes the progress NYC has made in improving cyclist safety and lays out a plan to improve it further.

This means that there are a high number of cyclists KSI (killed or severely injured) with a low to medium amount of bike infrastructure.
