Bike lanes are good for business. “…businesses on 9th Avenue, the first major green lane in the city, saw a 49 percent rise in retail sales, compared to 3 percent across Manhattan as a whole, according to research by the New York City Department of Transportation.
If you are a local Kirkland business owner:
- Would like to participate in an “on-the-spot” survey program with Kirkland Greenways to find out how your customers are getting to you?
- We’ll ask people at the door if they arrived by foot, bike, bus, or car?
- then, we’ll share the results with you. It’s that simple!
Send us a note, and we’ll work with you to set up a day when Kirkland Greenways volunteers will come out to your business!
Here’s a fun article on how even a VERY small business owner understands the benefits of a greenway! Lemonade Baron in Seattle explains how greenways are good for business.
