NYC Converts Parking Meters Into Bike Racks

The NewYork Post reports that 225 parking meters will be converted to
bike racks. Meters on the Upper East and West sides, Park Slope,
Riverdale, and Ridgewood will have their heads removed and be turned
into bike racks. The new racks will replace every third or fourth

The NYC Transportation Commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan told the Post
that cycling increased by 26% in 2009. Currently NYC has one bike
rack for every 30 cyclists according to Transportation Alternatives.
