The Port Authority of NY and NJ Will Have New Free and Secure Bike Parking Sites – NBC New York (47)

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced Tuesday that it will add free, secure bike racks at three new sites: the Midtown Bus Terminal, the Harrison PATH Station and the Hudson Square Station, with service scheduled to begin. in late summer.

This due to the celebration of Bike to Work Week,

The new bike parking units are being introduced in partnership with Oonee, a Brooklyn-based bike pod operator in the New York-New Jersey region that currently runs a 20-bike facility at PATH Journal Square. Oonee is installing the new units at no cost to the Port Authority, based on advertising revenue generated by the pod-mounted digital displays.

“As the bicycling community continues to grow, we recognize the challenges and opportunities in providing safe and convenient bike parking,” said Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole. “These three new Oonee locations take into account the needs of cyclists who use our facilities and the surrounding neighborhoods.”

In addition to the launch of new bike parking modules, those who live, work or visit the World Trade Center campus or surrounding areas can now use an interactive map that includes cycling information and provides hyper-local information on bicycle access routes in the WTC and its surroundings, as well as an updated map of the campus, accessible here.

Oonee bike racks feature security cameras, air pumps, secure gate accessed via mobile app, interior and exterior lighting, and theft insurance. They will soon start introducing smart racks for those who park without a lock.

The new locations will be outside of the Harrison PATH station, on Port Authority property in Hudson Square, near the Holland Tunnel at Canal Street and Hudson Streets, and along 42nd Street on the Midtown Bus Terminal property.
