Title: Donate Your Bike to an Essential Worker
Post by: Matt on April 06, 2020, 06:08:07 PM
I just heard about this on WNYC. If you have an unused bicycle that you'd like to donate to an essential worker, you can do so through Transportation Alternatives. For obvious reasons, people are avoiding public transportation and are looking for other ways to get around. If you are an essential worker looking for a bike, this is for you too.

Form to complete if you'd like to donate or receive a bike:
