NYC DOT conducted an extensive participatory planning and outreach campaign with the local communities in Morningside Heights and Harlem to select Citi Bike locations. Per the program’s siting guidelines, this process included more than twenty-five meetings and events with Community Boards 9 and 10, 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.
The draft station siting plans were initially released by DOT in Spring 2016, with updated draft siting plans released in April of this year. Since then, DOT has reviewed comments from local stakeholders about proposed locations. As a result, DOT has relocated four stations in Manhattan CB 9 and three stations in Manhattan CB 10 between the initial draft and final version of the plans. You can view the final Citi Bike station sites using the links below.
DOT anticipates that Motivate will install these stations later this year.
