Brooklyn Bridge Bike Lane Led Ongoing Boom Through 2021 - Streetsblog


The new bike-only path on the fabled Brooklyn Bridge, which transformed a span that few cyclists used because of dangerously overcrowded conditions on a narrow shared walking and biking path, has led to an increase in the total number of cycling trips across all East River bridges — a reminder that creating safe bike infrastructure will not only raise the numbers using it, but also create new ridership.


Shortly after the Brooklyn Bridge bike lane opened last September, Streetsblog reported that the number of trips quickly rose 88 percent, compared to the same month the year before. And now, new data show the boom continued into the colder months.
