To Beat The Backlash, Expand The Bike Network, Say Planners

Bike lanes have become one of the most controversial topics in all of New York City. For cycling to take hold, the city needs to make sure all groups have equal access to cycling, say a team of Hunter College grad students.

"The accelerated expansion of the bike network has built new bikeways in every borough and brought safer conditions to some low-income neighborhoods, but overall the city's bicycle planning has concentrated the most and best bike infrastructure in close-in, affluent neighborhoods," says Noah Kazis about the report.

The report also recommends the creation of "transit hubs."
