Tonight! Bike safety on Chrystie Street…Transportation & Public Safety / Environment Committee!!

A plea from local bike activists:

Chrystie Street has a problem. The road is simply not safe enough for the thousands of daily users traversing it on two feet, two wheels, or behind the wheels of a vehicle. The last major change to Chrystie street happened more than six years ago, before Citibikes were a way of life and Vision Zero was the Mayor’s master plan for safer streets. Now in 2015, NYC’s Department of Transportation is looking to repave the roadway and so the time is right to re-examine the roadway and re-allocate space to better serve all those who use it. Join the conversation and help bring positive change to Chrystie Street.
