SoHo Bike Share Planning Workshop

February 3, 2012

I work in SoHo, so it will likely be the place where I access New York’s bike share system the most.  Even though I commute on my own bike, there are plenty of times when being able to hop on a bike share bike would be the best possible option: there’s no need to schlep my bike downstairs, carry a heavy lock, or worry about a safe place to park.  It’s probably not too dissimilar from the reason a car commuter would take a taxi to get to a lunchtime meeting or doctor’s appointment.

On Monday at 6 pm, SoHo area residents, workers, and others can help shape the bike share system.

Join Manhattan’s Community Board 2, and local residents and business owners at a roundtable planning workshop to help decide how bike share should work and where stations should go in the West Village, Tribeca and and SoHo.  In partnership with Community Board 2 and Councilmember Chin. The Workshop will take place at Our Lady of Pompeii, 25 Carmine Street in Manhattan.

I’d recommend that you find out which Community Board covers the neighborhood where you work and attend its bike share workshop if you can.

    Be sure to suggest a station smack dab in front of Sean Sweeney’s place.

    If Sean Sweeney winds up being there, that’s all the more reason for me and other YIMBYs to go.

    I went to the Soho planning session tonight and I thought it went really well. Some opposing thoughts at my table, but mostly about placement of bike kiosks vs. negative towards the whole program itself.
