Board 3 fielding bike-share concerns, and monitoring program’s launch
From Susan Stetzer, Community Board 3 district manager, on bike-share docking stations: Bike Share will launch May 27. Issues that must be dealt with immediately, such as a blocked driveway or loading zone, should be e-mailed to the community board office (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will work with the Department of Transportation to have these sites inspected immediately.
There are other concerns regarding placement of installations or size of installations, or the number of installations in close proximity to each other. We are asking people to wait until bike-share is in operation for a month to see what works and what doesn’t. What installations are not being used to capacity? What installations do not accommodate the number of bikes needed?
The Community Board 3 Transportation Committee will meet on Tuesday, July 16, to hear concerns. D.O.T. will attend the meeting to note these concerns and address or inspect and follow up. Please check the C.B. 3 Web site (cb3manhattan.org) for the meeting location or sign up to receive monthly agendas (join cb 3’s mail liston website).
