Building a Bike-Friendly Business District in the LES

An Outreach Event with Transportation Alternatives

Join the Wagner Transportation Association and Transportation Alternatives in building support for one the nation’s first Bike-Friendly Business Districts! As you know, bicycle use and infrastructure improvements in NYC have exploded over the past few years, but that hasn’t come without some battles. In order to win even more improvements, TA has begun identifying bike-friendly businesses throughout the city, and has its eyes set on declaring the Lower East Side a bike-friendly district. To help with this initiative, we’re organizing a Day of Service to canvass small businesses and educate them about how they can support bicycling in the city. We’ll meet at the TA offices at 1 PM on Saturday, April 21st for training & lunch, then head back to the LES for the canvass. It’s sure to be a lot of fun and will make bicycling in NYC even better. Please RSVP by April 18th. To check out the current list of bike-friendly businesses and learn more, visit http://bikingrules.org/business.
