(New York, NY – Jim O’Grady, WNYC) Biking continues to go up in New York as driving and transit ridership stays nearly flat, according to a report being released today by the New York City Department of Transportation. The report found that bicycle commuting into Manhattan increased by 13 percent in 2010. During that same period, subway and bus ridership dropped by a little bit over 2 percent, while car traffic rose slightly.
I still don't think cars are the enemy, but it's good to see that the boost is real (and properly counted)... from this, resources can be better allocated.
