In keeping with our observation
in today's new issue that NYC bikes "want to be treated as legitimate transportation," I'm happy to report that cyclists may now park along with other legitimate forms of transportation at many parking lots throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, following the adoption of the Bicycle Access to Garages law
. Streetsblog reports
that one of the city's biggest parking lot operators, Edison ParkFast, now provides super-cheap bike parking at all their locations. Their rates—$1 for a day, $20 for a month—are still like $800 cheaper than a one-month Metrocard
, and the lots are probably a shade more secure
than on-the-street bike parking. Next step: dedicated bike garages. Please?
