CDTA and CDPHP Kick Off Bike-Share Site Selection

ALBANY, NY - April 7, 2017 - The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) and CDPHP are excited to announce that the public will have a say in deciding where CDPHP Cycle! stations will be located. Voting starts now at www.CDPHPcycle.com.

The CDPHP Cycle! website includes an interactive map to assist community members with voting on desired locations for stations and making their own suggestions. This feedback will be used along with information about population, city layouts, and existing bicycle infrastructure across the Capital Region to make decisions and start planning with cities.
