With the MTA strike deadline looming, those dependent on public transit here in New York City might want to start thinking about what they are going to do come Friday when there is no place to swipe their MetroCard. The city has set up an Alternative Transportation Information Center to help people figure out their transportation options.

If you are thinking about using your bike to get around, check out Transportation Alternatives’ In Case of Strike: Bike page.

Update: Starts and Fits notes that, in the event of a strike, PATH will operate special service (PDF) between 33rd Street and World Trade Center. This service will operate in addition to regular service on weekdays between 6 AM and 8 PM. Remember, PATH accepts pay per ride MetroCards at the turnstiles and it’s only $1.50.
