According to the Bronx Times, the City’s carsharing program will be taking hold in the Bronx and this is not making some Community Boards happy.
Parkchester will have 14 designated spots for carshare and the areas of Belmont Avenue, White Plains Road, Jerome Avenue, and E. 190th Street will also be reserving spaces.
The concern among Bronxites is largely centered around taking away parking spaces used by local people. This, of course, could affect local business, they say. Also, there’s resentment over a lack of input before plans were made.
