City of Hoboken announces:

HOBOKEN DOUBLES BIKE RACK LOCATIONS ACROSS CITY
Launches bike rack sponsorship program for residents and businesses
The City of Hoboken is drastically expanding its bicycle parking capacity by more than doubling the number of locations with bike racks.
“They say that if you build it, they will come, and that’s exactly why we’re continuing to expand our bicycle infrastructure,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “This is an important component of my administration’s comprehensive efforts to make Hoboken greener and more bike and pedestrian friendly.”
New bicycle racks are being installed along the Washington Street and 1st Street commercial corridors, around the 2nd and 9th Street light rail stops, near parks, and in other key areas including the hospital and supermarkets.
“We can’t install them fast enough,” said Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs. “Sometimes within minutes of bolting them down, they fill up with bikes.”
The 36 new bike rack locations will increase Hoboken‘s bicycle parking capacity by more than 200 additional spaces. Bike racks were previously available at 29 locations. Click here for a map of existing and new bike rack locations and their capacities.
“We at Hoboken Sweet Streets are pleased to see new bicycle racks popping up all over town,” said James Vance, a founding member of the bike and pedestrian advocacy group. “The administration is to be applauded for its effort to promote bicycling as an important part of the transportation mix.”
In addition, the City is setting up a program through which residents and businesses can sponsor bike racks to be installed outside their storefronts or other locations with an inscription acknowledging the sponsor. Those interested in the program can emailbikes@hobokennj.org to request a sponsorship form.
