Let Your Voice Be Heard - Help Improve NYC's Bike-Share Program

10,000 new bikes will appear in New York City next summer when a new bike-sharing program is launched. The bikes will be located in 600 stations sprinkled around Manhattan and Brooklyn, but the exact location of each station still needs to be determined. That's where citizens of NYC come in! The NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) will be holding community planning workshops in various areas of the city to allow local citizens to help determine what the best spots are for stations, and what the "hell no" locations are.

You can see a timeline of workshops here. There's one tomorrow, January 31st, for Hell’s Kitchen, Chelsea and Clinton. The next one is on February 6th for the West Village, Tribeca and and SoHo, and so on.

If you are in NYC, I encourage you to attend. This is what democracy is all about, and it'll make for a better and more successful bike-share program!
