THANK YOU, COUNTY EXEC FOR SUPPORTING BICYCLE RACKS ON BUSES
Release Date: April 12, 2009

The County Executive and I have disagreed on some policy issues in the past. I was very pleased to read the quote in Sunday's Westchester section of the NY TIMES that the County Executive will support placing bike racks on buses.The County Executive made his comments at a bicycle summit held at the county center this past week. Bike racks are inexpensive, will encourage more people to use public transportation. Many municipalities have them.
It's my hope that County Executive Andrew Spano will take steps to make this happen in 2009.  It would be great if a timeline for making this happen could be announced when Greenburgh holds its EARTH DAY conference at the Greenburgh Library on April 22nd from 3 PM to 8 PM.  It's also my hope that NYC will follow Westchester County's lead. Placing bike racks on buses in the city will reduce traffic congestion and make it safer for cyclists in NYC.
This has been a major goal of mine since the mid 1990s.  The following are summaries of statements that I made on this subject from previous issues of the NY TIMES.
