Biaggi joins advocates, cyclists to call on Hochul to sign MTA bike access bill


New York State Sen. Alessandra Biaggi and state Assemblywoman Jessica González-Rojas joined bike and sustainable transportation advocates Thursday to urge Gov. Kathy Hochul to sign legislation designed to promote cycling and pedestrian access on MTA bridges and transit stations in New York City.

The bill requires the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to develop a strategic plan to promote cycling and pedestrian access on all MTA bridges and commuter rail stations. Additionally, the legislation requires the MTA to consider and prioritize bicycle and pedestrian access when planning capital projects.
