Building the Network

New York City is home to the largest network of bicycle lanes in North America, with over 1,000 miles of bike routes. NYC DOT is committed to continuing to grow the network by installing at least 50 lane-miles of bicycle facilities a year, including at least 10 lane-miles of protected bike lanes. On-street bike lanes help improve safety for all road users by organizing the street and visually narrowing the roadway for drivers.
