NYC Bicycling Up 66% in 2 Years After Installation of 200 Miles of Bike Facilities!

Streetsblog has just posted the latest ridership numbers released by the New York City Department of Transportation and over a two year period, they’ve seen an increase of 66% in ridership! What’s changed in that time? Over the last three years, they’ve installed 200 miles worth of bicycle facilities. And what about fatality rates compared to ridership?

We’d been told that bicycle infrastructure would only wreak havoc and create exponential growth in fatalities. The safety in numbers studies have proven this to not be the case, and these latest figures only cement that point.

Built it, and they will come.
