Mayor Bill de Blasio and Commissioner Polly Trottenberg today released a progress report on the Green Wave, the City’s plan to make streets safer for cyclists. The City has built 104 miles of protected bike lanes (PBLs) since 2014, including 21.4 miles completed in 2019. The de Blasio Administration has built over 400 miles of bike lanes since 2014.

The City will also construct approximately 10 new miles of protected bike lanes in Manhattan in 2020, including completing the Central Park West northbound protected lane and bringing the 6th Avenue northbound lane through Midtown to Central Park. These new projects are part of the Green Wave commitment to build 30 PBL miles across the city this year.
