Biking in the City up 35% (since 1984)

04Nov08

The New York Times reported on Thursday that the number of cyclists in the New York City has grown by 35% since 1984. A study conducted by the Department of Transportation takes a count once a year, during the middle of the week for a 12-hour period, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. However, they’ve expanded the time to 18 hours (and controlled for it) in the last year to get a more accurate sample.

The Williamsburg bridge is seeing the greatest growth, quadrupling the number of cyclists crossing the from 2000 to 2008, to 4,000 on a typical day. Can we say bike revolution? [via NYT]
