NYC DOT conducted an extensive participatory planning and outreach campaign with the local community to select additional Citi Bike locations in Long Island City over the last year. This process, per the program’s siting guidelines, included more than a dozen meetings and events with Community Board 2, local elected officials, area institutions, BIDs, and other community organizations. From public workshops to community presentations, DOT actively engaged with the community and listened to their concerns and comments.
After releasing draft station siting plans in May, NYC DOT did a comprehensive review of comments received from local stakeholders about proposed stations and as a result, DOT has relocated two stations between the draft and final versions of the plans. These new stations were added to the existing bike share network to improve system-wide density, helping to ensure that Citi Bike continues to provide a robust and reliable service for users. You can view the final Citi Bike station sites in Queens CB2 using the link below.
DOT anticipates that Motivate will install these stations later this year.
