Bike-Share Presentations Continue at CBs This Week, Beginning Tonight

With two stops in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan, the Department of Transportation this week continues its tour of community boards to present plans for city bike-share. In last week’s presentation to Manhattan Community Board 2, DOT officials provided new details on the proposed boundaries for the bike-share system, its cost structure, siting criteria and the public process moving forward. The public also had a chance to offer preliminary input (it was all positive feedback from District 2) and ask questions about how bike-share will work. For those excited or curious about the program, these meetings are worth attending:

  • Tonight: Brooklyn CB 2, St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, First Floor Board Room, 6:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday: Manhattan CB 4, Holland House, 351 West 42nd Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues), Piano Room, 6:30 p.m.
  • Thursday: Brooklyn CB 6, Prospect Park Residence, 1 Prospect Park West (between Grand Army Plaza and President Street), 6:30 p.m.
