City Still Sending Mixed Signals on Bike Parking

10:53 AM EDT on August 16, 2007

A tipster sent us these photos of the City's new indoor bicycle parking facility at 280 Broadway. A couple of months ago cyclists who work for the City suddenly found themselves and their bikes turned away from their office buildings, leaving few options aside from locking up to street signs and unprotected outdoor racks. This new facility, free to any City employee with a valid ID, should help commuters who work near City Hall.

Despite the new space at 280 Broadway, and promises of more to come, Streetsblog got word that a cycling commuter at the Health Department was recently escorted from the building by security and told to park elsewhere. Stay tuned.
