Build a network of bike lanes connecting Queens

This petition had 953 supporters

To New York City Community Boards 1, 3 and 4, and to New York City Department of Transportation:

We urge you to support and build a network of bicycle lanes connecting small parks in Jackson Heights, Corona and East Elmhurst, and connecting our area to surrounding neighborhoods.

- Biking cuts travel time between northern Queens neighborhoods in half in comparison to mass transit options with health benefits, zero carbon footprint and minimal investment in infrastructure. 

- Residents of East Elmhurst and northern Corona lack access to subway lines. Safe bicycle transportation could save travel time and improve life quality for more than 100,000 residents.

- Jackson Heights ranks near the bottom among all New York neighborhoods in park space — the lanes would mitigate the issue. A network of bike lanes connecting the small parks that exist in Jackson Heights, East Elmhurst and Corona to larger parks in Flushing and Astoria would help mitigate the problem.

Thank you for your support!
