Action Alert: Tell John Liu to Support Better Bike Commuting in NYC
An important heads up for our New York readers: Before you start grilling this weekend, make sure you sign on to TA's campaign urging John Liu to support the Bicycle Access Bill. Pretty much everyone from Mayor Bloomberg on down expected the bill to clear Liu's transportation committee this week and gain passage in the City Council. Didn't happen.
If Liu lets the bill come up for a vote, we're looking at a watershed moment for bike commuting in New York. If he doesn't, it will be a major blow to PlaNYC's vision of a bike-friendly city, and the collective record of transportation committee chairs everywhere will somehow sink even lower.
