Bike Parking at our New East Harlem Campus is Now Better Than Ever!

Priority: Informational

Hunter has partnered with the NYC Department of Transportation to install 8 new "ribbon-style" bicycle racks on the sidewalks just outside of our newly-built East Harlem campus.  The racks can be found on both Third Avenue and on 119th Street.

In its desire to encourage bicycle ridership in New York City, the DOT's CityRacks Program provides and installs bike racks at various properties that request them, free of charge.  Hunter College has previously benefited from the CityRacks Program, where 6 ribbon racks were installed on its main campus.  You can learn more about the DOT's CityRacks Program HERE.

The HCSC is an outgrowth of PlaNYC 2030, as is Hunter's participation in the "30 in 10" Challenge. PlaNYC 2030 is Mayor Bloomberg's comprehensive vision for New York's growth over the next 18 years. Explore PlaNYC 2030.
