Penn Parking Progress

Amtrak, Madison Square Garden, the 34th St Partnership and DOT want to convert unused space into bicycle parking.Representatives from T.A., Amtrak, Madison Square Garden and the 34th Street Partnership toured Penn Station in March to assess opportunities for secure bicycle parking. The organizations are enthusiastic about the project and recognize the benefit of putting unused space to good use.

The proposed bike parking at Penn Station has also attracted the support of State Senator Tom Duane, State Senator Eric Schniederman, and Council member Christine Quinn. The Pennsylvania Station Redevelopment Corporation showed their support for the project as well, stating "secure bicycle parking would help guarantee that the entire Penn Station complex becomes a truly intermodal facility for the 500,000 passengers who pass through each day."
