Bike lanes

As part of New York’s efforts to reduce traffic congestion, new safer bike lanes are planned for midtown Manhattan.  New bike lanes that feature a row of parked cars on one side and a curb on the other side will be installed on 26th street and 29th street.   These new bike lanes will provide safer travel across Manhattan going east and west.  Currently, the majority of bike lanes with greater safety features run north and south.   The city has planned to construct 50 miles of new bike lanes every year which would include at least 10 miles of protected lanes.  Last year a record 25 miles of protected lanes were built.  The addition of more bike lanes will relieve congestion in the city, reduce the number of people on the roads, and provide alternative travel methods for New Yorkers.

Should there be more or fewer bike lanes?
