Ride Citi Bike? The AIANY Wants to Know Your Thoughts!

Inspired by the AIA New York Chapter’s commitment to Active Design and expanding access to transportation options in NYC, the Chapter has launched a survey to study the motivations of Citi Bike users in the city, in consultation with Transportation Alternatives and with Harris Interactive, which is doing a similar survey on Vélib’.

The results from the survey will help us better understand why people use Citi Bike. It will only take a few minutes of your time. All information will be kept confidential.
