City still has no official bike route to Union Station

Why were the sharrows installed recently throughout Downtown New Haven not added on the route to New Haven Union Station? (New Haven Safe Streets)

“Sharrows or bicycle lanes, like those recently placed throughout Downtown, would be a good first step towards bringing the street into line with the city’s and state’s new laws that require complete streets accommodations. However, ultimately providing access to the train station for road users of all ages and abilities will require a protected/buffered bike route or extension of the greenway (perhaps to be built in the space between the rail yard and the station property itself). Design New Haven previously reported on this issue in an article last year.”
