Biaggi helps pass legislation to expand bike access on the MTA


Lawmakers passed legislation last week that will improve cycling and pedestrian access on MTA bridges, bike parking at MTA subway and commuter rail stations and bike access on board MTA equipment.

The bills, sponsored by Senator Alessandra Biaggi, will develop a strategic plan to promote cycling and pedestrian access on all MTA bridges and commuter rail stations. Additionally, it requires the MTA to consider and prioritize bicycle and pedestrian access when planning capital projects.
