This Week: Shared Streets, Parking Tickets, SBS for Hylan Blvd

There’s something for everyone this week, from a sure-to-be interesting discussion of how to distribute street space to a City Council hearing on parking tickets and an update on plans for a Select Bus Service route from Staten Island to Bay Ridge.

  • Tonight: As part of its Streets Month, the Municipal Art Society is holding a panel on “Shared Streets.” After an introduction from DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, panelists will discuss the effect of reallocating street space from cars to buses, bikes and pedestrians. 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday: The City Council transportation committee holds a hearing on two bills put forward in Speaker Christine Quinn’s State of the City address.

  • Wednesday: The MTA presents an update on its Select Bus Service plans for Hylan Boulevard to Brooklyn’s Community Board 10. 7:00 p.m.
