Statement on the Ridgewood Car Share Program

September 7, 2017

“I have several concerns about the inclusion of Ridgewood in the carshare pilot program” said Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan. “It is already very difficult to find parking in our Ridgewood community and taking away many spots would be counterproductive. In addition, allowing a private car share company to use portions of the public street could be perceived as subsidy of that company at the taxpayers’ expense. I have recently met with Commissioner Trottenberg and representatives of the NYC Department of Transportation to share these concerns and I look forward to continuing this conversation as we talk through these very important issues. I remain open to a limited pilot program but want more community input. We need to hear from residents of Ridgewood as to how they feel.”
