Tell the City Where to Park It (Bikes, That Is)
November 28th, 2007

To help provide the Department of Transportation with a handle on bicyclist’s needs, a new website is mapping riders suggestions for where they could install bike racks (via Bike Blog). The Now You Choose Bike Parking Survey site, created by two bike enthusiasts at Hunter College, distributes a survey that asks where riders could use a place to lock up, then plots them in a Google map and posts them online. It also maps out where existing outdoor racks and indoor bicycle parking is currently available. By far the loneliest map they’ve created shows the seven publicly available sheltered parking locations. (The Transportation Department is already catching on to this particular need, however, and recently announced the first publicly funded bike shelters slated for 37 transportation hubs citywide.) The survey distributors plan to publish an interim report this month, but have yet to do so. So there’s still time for those of you inclined to participate in this sort of project.
