Should Bergen County’s Bike Path be useful for commuters? Comments now being accepted.

Central Bergen Bike/Walk ForumESPAÑOL (English below)
Los municipios adyacentes a la Ciclovía de Bergen County están creando un plan para conectar la vía con los destinos y municipios locales y están recopilando información sobre las necesidades de los usuarios de la vía. ¡Esto es una gran idea! Pero, la ciclovía tradicionalmente se ha utilizado principalmente para la recreación. Si usted desee que el camino también sea de gran utilidad para los que viajan hacía y desde la escuela o el trabajo ¡alce la voz! Hay dos opciones para comunicar su opinión:

  1. Asistir al foro público y expresar su opinión:
    Jueves 16 de abril 2015 4-7 pm
    Elmwood Park Recreation Center
    500 Boulevard (esquina Market Street)
    Elmwood Park, NJ
  2. Usted también puede compartir información electrónicamente en http://centralbergenbikewalk.com e inscribirse en la lista de correo electrónico para recibir actualizaciones sobre el proceso de planificación. Comentários sometidos a través del 31 de mayo se incluirán en el reporte final.
    1. Cuando estás dibujando su ruta cuidado de no cliquear en la casilla de “Snap to Route” – como no funciona.
    2. Tenga en cuenta que su viaje en la ciclovía puede incluir un viaje en autobús también. Muchos de los estudiantes de Bergen Community College, por ejemplo, viajan al Garden State Plaza Mall por bus y de allá podrían llegar al college utilizando a la ciclovía (algunos buses llevan portabicicletas por delante).
    3. Es posible comentar en otras rutas que fueron sometidas por demás personas.

Central BBW ssMunicipalities around the Bergen County Bike + Walk Path are creating a plan to connect the path with adjacent local destinations and towns and they are collecting user input. This is a great idea! But, the path has traditionally been used mainly for recreation. If you believe the path should also be highly useful for commuters traveling to and from school or work, please make your voice heard. You can do this in two ways:

  1. Attend the Final Open House meeting and voice your opinion on:
    Thursday 16 April 2015 4–7pm
    Elmwood Park Recreation Center
    500 Boulevard (corner of Market Street)
    Elmwood Park, NJ
  2. You can also give input electronically at http://centralbergenbikewalk.com and put your name on the mailing list to receive updates. Comments received through May 31 will be included in the final report.
    1. Please note that giving input requires registration (e-mail and username only). Also, make sure not to click the “snap to route” box because it doesn’t work right.
    2. Remember that you might want to ride the bus to Garden State Plaza Mall, for example, and bike from there to Bergen Community College, the Golf Course or Paramus Catholic High School. A growing number of buses have front-mounted bike racks.
    3. You can also comment on routes drawn by other people.
