More than 300 blocks will be closed to cars for pedestrian use as part of the city’s 2022 Open Streets program, the Department of Transportation announced last week. This year’s program–considered the largest of its kind in the country–has expanded to include 21 new locations, with a total of 156 locations throughout the five boroughs. All of the open streets will be active by the summer of 2022.

Department of Transportation Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez last Friday announced the city will be piloting a new bike parking model this spring. DOT will be testing Brooklyn-based company Oonee’s “Mini,” a prototype of the company’s six-bike corral, at five high-traffic locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens over the next couple of months. The pilot program is part of the city’s broader effort to expand secure bike parking.
