Hoboken Needs Your Vote–Help Hoboken Win a Saris Bike Rack for The PATH Station
Below is a note from Brian Wagner of Bike Hoboken asking Hoboken residents to help out and vote in a competition where Hoboken can win a Saris Bike Corral. This will help with the demand for more bike rack in key areas like the Hoboken NJ PATH station (commuter hub in Hoboken to NYC and all points from Hoboken).
“I am a bike advocate leader for Bike Hoboken (www.bikehoboken.com or Bike Hoboken on Face Book), we work with Hoboken’s city govt and Hudson County’s Hudson TMA to bring safe bicycling as a mode of transportation to Hoboken NJ. Our 1 mile square city has 55,000 residents, we have had the biggest parking program for years and in the past 2 years have made huge strides in bringing new bicycle infrastructure to Hoboken– bike racks, bike repair station, 10 miles of new lanes being striped now to add to what we have creating 25 miles of lanes. Our bike racks at the famous PATH station terminal are filled to capacity each day with workers taking to bikes rather than cars and buses. Help us to bring more safe bike parking to our PATH station. Our city added 30 new racks about 4 months ago and everyday by 9:30 they are filled, 2 +3 bike per rack. It is an awesome site to see each day. We have bike counts on main streets and intersections to help baseline our bike usage growth. We’d love to add a Saris bike rack to the PATH station as well as other locales in Hoboken NJ. Please vote for us as thousands of commuters pass through out PATH station everyday to/from work. Ride Safe, Brian Wagner, Bike Hoboken.Brian Wagner”
