Volunteer Opportunity: Million-Mile Parking Study
How many miles do New Yorkers drive each year just circling the block for parking? It’s in the hundreds of millions. Transportation Alternatives needs volunteers on bikes to help “cruise” for parking at four locations along Columbus Avenue, where they’ll collect the amount of time it takes to find an open parking space. The data will help them calculate the total number of cruising miles in NYC, and help the Columbus Avenue Business Improvement District in its push for parking reform in NYC. It’s simple stuff, and a great way to help Transportation Alternatives on two wheels. Join them for an evening survey session, and watch this study make headlines.
