Your Choice! Vote to Bring CDPHP Cycle! Stations to Your Neighborhood
ALBANY, NY (April 5, 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 was open at www.CDPHPcycle.com during the month of April.
The www.CDPHPcycle.com 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.
Information sessions were also held on the following dates. Community members had a chance to meet the CDPHP Cycle! staff, check out a model bike, ask questions, and learn more about the region’s first bike-sharing program.

In partnership with CDPHP, CDTA launched CDPHP Cycle! on March 20. The program will provide 160 bikes distributed among approximately 20 bike stations. It will premiere in Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and Saratoga and will offer the community a healthy and affordable mode of transportation when it hits the streets this summer.
