Penn Bike Parking on Cusp of Success

Secure bike parking at Penn Station is tantalizingly close. The New York City Department of Transportation needs to draft a user agreement for Madison Square Garden, and then the two organizations need to sign it.

After the City finishes building the bike parking area, the 34th Street Partnership Business Improvement District will run it. Madison Square Garden is occupied with preparing for the Republican National Convention through September. If the Garden and the City DOT sign the papers this spring, they could easily build the bike parking in the fall. Forward, DOT!
