Public Presentations on NYC Bike-Share Start Next Week

Photo-sim: NYC DOT

Next week, NYC DOT and Alta Bikeshare will begin what promises to be a detailed public outreach process to help plan the city’s new bike-share system. The schedule for the first community board presentations has been posted on the city’s bike-share timeline.

Planning the bike-share network will involve placing about 600 stations within a service area ranging from Bed Stuy to 79th Street. The meetings next week will give an overview of how bike-share will work in NYC and the process for deciding where stations should go. If you want to get involved in the public planning surrounding the most important green transportation initiative underway in the city, these presentations will be a good way to start.

Here are the details:

  • Tuesday, October 11 – 6:30 PM–8:30 PM
