In recent years, there’s been a huge increase in the number of bicyclists using East River bridges. Here’s a visual representation of the trend.

Crews with the Department of Transportation yesterday installed a bike counter alongside the pathway leading to the Manhattan Bridge.  The counter displays daily and yearly counts.

A recent report showed that bike traffic on the Manhattan Bridge increased 25% between 2012 and 2017.
