In the past three years, the City of Hoboken has installed 8 miles of new bike lanes covering 25% of the City’s street miles, nearly doubled bicycle parking capacity, retrofitted old parking meters as bike racks, started a bike rack sponsorship program for residents and businesses, and installed its first public bike repair station.
