Brooklyn Bike Patrol Expands to Cover 25 Subway Stops

The Brooklyn Bike Patrol, which escorts women home from subway stations in the late evening hours, now cover 25 subways stops in Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Kensington, Sunset Park, Carroll Gardens, Prospect Heights and Clinton Hill.

They operate seven days a week; hours of operation are Sunday-Thursday 8 pm-12 midnight and Friday-Saturday 8 pm -3 am. If you need an escort outside of these hours call them ahead of time and they will try to accommodate you.

All of their volunteers have been background-checked by the 72nd precinct. Volunteers carry ID cards with them and wear "Brooklyn Bike Patrol" T-shirts with a special patch on the sleeve.
