Bike Lanes in NYC – slower and more dangerous?

Posted by Steve Reiter on September 27, 2010

Take a look at this video of bike lane use in New York City.  Slow riders, pedestrians, trucks, taxis, left-turning cars, car doors… and a carpet… add up to lack of safety for riders who have a long way to go and are comfortable riding faster.

Onondaga County Transportation and Community Planning Survey

Posted by Steve Reiter on September 21, 2010

Onondaga County is conducting an online survey (as well as a statistically sampled mailed survey) addressing issues of community planning and transportation.  Please fill out the online form here:  If you also receive a paper copy in the mail, please fill that out also, as they are being tabulated separately.

  • assess residents’ values and attitudes toward land development and infrastructure investments,
  • test acceptance of a variety of concepts in land use and transportation planning, and
  • help understand residents travel habits and desired improvements to the transportation system.
