2 Important Surveys: Your Response Is Requested
The Bronx Chamber is working with the NYC Department of Small Business Services to better understand NYC small business owners’ need for funding. This will help the City design better solutions to help small businesses grow.  This 5-minute survey will assist in collecting information about small business’s experience with, and interest in, financing assistance.
Please take this separate 5-minute Small Business Regulatory Survey to add your voice regarding the impact violations have on NYC small businesses. This brief survey will allow you to share what small business go through, and for NYC government to assess the common violations.
To share additional feedback please email the NYC SBS Regulatory Reform at
Update on NYC DOT Shared E-Scooter Pilot Program
Since the August 2021 launch of the shared e-scooter pilot program that started last year in the Northeast Bronx (serving Eastchester, Wakefield, Pelham Parkway, and Co-Op City), residents and visitors have taken over 425,000 rides, an average of more than 2,100 rides per day.
DOT plans to expand the service area in June 2022, bringing the pilot to Parkchester, Soundview, and Throggs Neck. The three participating companies, BirdLime and Veo, will continue to provide service across the East Bronx.
Click to access the feedback map which allows users to place pins down at locations where they’d like to see designated parking corrals, which will help organize the scooters on busy corridors. The Bronx Chamber of Commerce was glad to be part of the launch effort last year, and will continue to support ongoing promotion of this initiative to improve access to afforable transportation options in the borough.
