Manhattan CB 2 Passes Unanimous Resolution in Favor of Bike-Share

Earlier this month NYC DOT set off on a bike-share information tour, giving an introduction to the city's plans for a public bike-sharing system to every community board in the proposed service area. Bike-share plans got an enthusiastic reception from the Manhattan CB2 Transportation Committee. And it turns out that the full board backs the program too. On October 20, CB 2 voted 41-0 for a resolution stating that the board "fully supports DOT’s new Bike Share program."

Next up on the bike-share tour: Manhattan Community Board 8. The transportation committee will hear from DOT this Wednesday at 6:30. If you want to bring bike-share to the Upper East Side, you might want to speak up at this community board, where bike improvements seldom have an easy go of it.
