About the Maps

The map shows the existing and potential bicycle facilities throughout the city. It is the result of extensive fieldwork involving analysis of traffic conditions, community input, and the assessment of the connectivity, accessibility, and safety of the network. The map was designed by the NYC Department of City Planning and the Department of Transportation in order to:

  • Encourage people to bicycle by promoting bicycle-friendly streets and parks;
  • Educate bicyclists of their rights and responsibilities as roadway and park users; and
  • Recognize bicycles as a legitimate mode of transportation.

The Bronx and Staten Island editions of the bicycling map were the first to be released in 1997, and in 1998, maps for all five boroughs were produced. Eventually, the individual borough maps were combined into one single map. The maps are distributed to the public, advocacy groups, bicycle shops, governmental agencies, and elected and appointed officials. More than 3,500,000 maps have been printed and distributed since 1997. A total of 25,000 maps were made available in 1997 and more than 365,000 maps have been published this year.

Bicycling maps are available for free at the NYC Department of City Planning bookstore, in bicycle shops, libraries, and schools. They can also be obtained by calling the New York City Call Center at 311 (outside of New York City call 212-NEW-YORK).
