    NYC Bike parking...

    Transportation Alternatives is working with the 34th Street Partnership to provide FREE valet bike parking in Herald Square for the duration of the strike.

    We'll be there from 8 am – 7 pm Monday-Friday to keep your bike safe and sound. Great for all of you working or shopping in midtown.

    The NYC Parks Department is providing guarded bike parking at Washington Square Park, Tompkins Square Park, Union Square, Madison Square Park, and Bryant Park.
    Where else can I park my bike?

    1. Ask your employer to provide bike parking in your building or office.

    2. Find a local garage that accepts bikes for parking.

    3. If all else fails check out some good tips for safely locking your bike on the street:

    * transalt.org/press/magazine/905SepOctcc/08-9locks.html
    * transalt.org/press/magazine/886NovDeccc/1saveyourbike.html

    The City has made contingency plans for all modes of transportations. Get the full picture.


    One great thing about the strike—
    clear bike lanes, even on 6th Avenue in Manhattan!

    it is indeed great.
    but it's too bad that it's gotta come to this for the lanes to finally clear

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    This might be the dumbest question I will ever ask, but here goes ... if I park my bike at one of the 'guarded' parking areas, do I need a lock?

    (I don't own one, otherwise I wouldn't ask. It's on my xmas list.)

    I don't believe you do. Every valet bike parking I've ever done was like a coat check - they put a ticket on your bike & give it back to you at the end of the day when you present your stub.

    Just pray that they don't give your bike away by mistake.....and at the end of the day when you get there, they'll hand you a rusted Huffy.

    The bike parking lots I've encountered were nothing more than several large racks surrounded by a fence with a "guard" sitting at the entrance. Locks were still required.
