NYC DOT conducted an extensive participatory planning and outreach campaign with the local community to select Citi Bike locations in Astoria last fall. Per the program’s siting guidelines, this process included more than eighteen meetings and events with Community Board 1, local elected officials, area institutions, BIDS, and other community organizations. Through public workshops and community presentations, DOT actively engaged with the community and listened to concerns and comments.
The draft station siting plans were released by DOT in April of this year. Comments received from local stakeholders about proposed locations were reviewed by DOT, and as a result nine stations were relocated between the draft and final versions of the plan. You can view the final Citi Bike station sites in Queens CB1 using the link below.
DOT anticipates that Motivate will install these stations later this year.
