Thanks for checking the project guidelines. The goal is to collect all the required information to build a realistic and feasible project to construct bicycle tracks connecting Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Bicycle Super Highway collects and manages crucial information, involves stakeholders, connects the dots, and filters the essence out of every piece of data. The project funnels the knowledge contained in each and every neighborhood, each and every street, each and every New Yorker, and brings it together to plan and realize the most innovative, ecological, inclusive, and cool infrastructure project in the history of New York.
Become part of this great endeavor and support us with your knowledge to realize the Bicycle Super Highway project. Read the following “urban principles”, which serve as the general framework for the project contributions.
What are the areas, streets, communities where the Bicycle Super Highway passes? What line does it follow? Where should it and where shouldn’t it pass and why? What construction leads to an end-to-end path connecting the dots?
New York has tons of infrastructure. How can it be used for the Bicycle Super Highway? Disused tunnels, rail tracks, empty streets–could they be part of this new infrastructure? What obstacles in specific locations could be detrimental to the bicycle path and force it to go along on another route?
A crucial part of this transportation artery is the exact path and access points. Where do cyclists enter and exit? What is the path to and from the Bicycle Super Highway? Do present cycle lanes offer enough room for unclogged cycling to and from the Bicycle Super Highway? What issues and requirements may arise in your location?
How are cyclists impacting your neighborhood and how can neighborhoods accommodate them? What capacity for bicycle storage is required and where are they located? How is existing transport linked to the Bicycle Super Highway (MTA, trains, other)?
There several businesses and organizations already tightly intertwined in cycling in the city. How can CitiBike and bicycle shops best support the Bicycle Super Highway and vice-versa?
