Why are New Yorkers bicycling to work in record numbers?

Today is Bike To Work Day in NYC. And as usual Transportation Alternatives was out hosting some fueling stations in the morning.

We thought with the newest NYC DOT data showing bicycling at an all-time high, it would be great time to ask bicyclists why they are riding their bikes more. Interestingly, the answers seemed to fall in three distinct categories: it is safer, it is healthy and MTA is falling apart.

But don’t take our word for it, listen to what your fellow city riders told us.

    There are also more people using multiple forms of transportation, even on a single trip. So someone going from the UWS to Cobble Hill might take:
    * Citibike to 59th Street (to avoid the packed #1);
    * Subway to downtown Brooklyn
    * Citibike to Cobble Hill (where there is no good subway)
