Petition DOT for Motorcycle-Only Parking on the West Side

Action Alert!
Motorcycle-Only Parking
in the West Village & Hell’s Kitchen

Community Boards 2 and 4 in Manhattan have approved of eleven motorcycle- and scooter-only parking spots throughout the West Village and Hell’s Kitchen. However, the NYC DOT has refused to implement all but two of them. The NYMSTF is trying to put the pressure on DOT to install the signage that New York’s communities have voted for.

We need you to write the Commissioner of the DOT and request that the motorcycle-only pilot parking program be implemented.

1. E-mail NYC DOT Commissioner Jeanette Sadik-Khan and Manhattan DOT Commissioner Margaret Forgione

2. Write the commissioner a letter:

Margaret Forgione
Manhattan Borough Commissioner
59 Maiden Lane, 35th Floor
New York, New York  10038

3. Tell your friends and fellow riders about it by giving them this link or sharing it on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. (links at top of page)

Edit the message below to your liking but remain respectful:

Dear Commissioner,

Please promptly implement the motorcycle parking pilot areas that have already been approved by Manhattan Community Boards 2 and 4.

Motorcycles and scooters are a practical and efficient means of transportation and are an essential element of mobility and logistics in the modern urban environment.
