SNA was contacted by Ford Go Bike/Motivate about the four sites they propose for bikeshare stations in Sunnyside. They would like to hear from Sunnyside residents about the proposed choices, and we encourage you to write directly to Justin Nguyen, the Outreach Coordinator. (See below for full contact info.)

Here are mock-up photographs of the sites. These are: northeast corner, Gennessee & Monterey (23 bikes); southwest corner, Hearst & Edna (19 bikes); northeast corner, Hearst & Congo (19 bikes); and south side of Judson between Foerster & Gennessee (23 bikes). All planned sites are located on the street (not sidewalk).
