Take the NYC Bike Parking Survey

Wallace Murray and Jason Nu are
two graduate students in Hunter
College’s geography
department.  They have teamed up with New York
City Department of City Planning’s Transportation Division to create a bike parking survey. They write:

We are working with the NYC Department of City Planning Transportation Division to

While the NYPD, Parks Department, MTA, unnamed authorities and, of course, bike thieves, busily clip locks and cart off New Yorkers’ bicycles in great number, the Department of Transportation is making sure that not only do bike commuters have a classy spot to park outdoors, but their tushies won’t get wet when it rains. Next […]

An NYC First: On-Street Parking Spaces Replaced by Bike Racks

The new bike racks have been installed at the Bedford Avenue L subway station in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As the Dept. of Transportation announces in today’s press release, "The facility marks the first time car parking spaces have been removed to accommodate bicycle parking in New York City."
