A Map: NYC Citi Bike share program up and running
By: Georgia Lobb
Here’s a map of the new Citi Bike stations in NYC, which sprawl across Manhattan and into Brooklyn and Queens.
The bike stations, which are represented by the blue dots on the map, were picked specifically by New Yorkers. “DOT invited New Yorkers to help shape the system, and we received tens of thousands of ideas on our online suggestion map, and many more in community workshops throughout the service area,” said DOT officials.
The Citi Bike system aims to be one of the biggest in North America, with 600 stations and over 1,000 bikes.
“Detailed site selection and planning work continues for Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Prospect Heights and Crown Heights (Brooklyn community districts 6, 8 and 9), the Upper West and East Sides (Manhattan districts 8 and 7) and Sunnyside (Queens district 2),” says DOT.
And while the program was delayed earlier this year due to software trouble and flooding due to Hurricane Sandy, according to Transportation Nation, the Citi Bike share is set to expand full speed ahead starting in May this year.
