BIKE PATHS & GREENWAYS
RESOURCES FOR RIDERS
DOT has issued a request for proposals for private companies to provide a bike share system in New York City. Bike share will serve as a new public transportation system, complete with durable bicycles and docking stations to provide convenient and inexpensive mobility twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.
Cycling is booming in New York. Commuter cycling has increased by 26% between 2008-2009 and more than doubled since 2005. The New York City Department of Health estimates that over a half million New Yorkers ride bikes. So what are you waiting for?
In addition to expanding the bike network, NYC’s Department Of Transportation encourages cycling installing outdoor bike parking and administering the Bikes in Buildings program, sponsoring events like Summer Streets.

BUILDING THE NETWORK
New York City doubled bicycle commuting between 2007 and 2011, and aims to triple it by 2017. In New York City, 10% of auto trips are under one-half mile, 22% are under 1 mile and 56% are under 3 miles – distances readily served by bicycle. DOT has completed the City’s ambitious goal of building 200 bike-lane miles in all five boroughs in just three years, nearly doubling the citywide on-street bike network while reshaping the city’s streets to make them safer for everyone who uses them.
