The cover slide from the Bronx Community Board 1 PowerPoint

Over the past two weeks, NYC DOT has gone to Manhattan Community Boards 9, 10, and 11, as well as Bronx Community Board 1 to present a draft plan for Citi Bike stations in their neighborhood. The draft plan takes into account the public outreach we've received, as well as other siting criteria, including ADA accessibility, parking loss and nearby utilities. Installations are expected to start in these areas later this spring. 

If you were unable to make it to the community board meetings, the presentation and maps are now available on this website. Visit the "Maps & Plans" in the top menu, and navigate down to the appropriate tab. We will also be accepting comments about the draft plan in the next few weeks. We have a short survey that asks station you are talking about (by noting the intersection), what comments you have, and, if applicable, an alternate location. 

Phase 3 of Citi Bike expansion will double the service area and triple the amount of bikes to ~40,000. For more information about Phase 3 in general, please refer to the Mayor's press release.

New York City Bike Share

Bike share provides New Yorkers with a convenient, affordable, and sustainable option for getting around the City. The majority of all transportation trips made in the city are shorter than two miles, a good distance for cycling. Bike share gives New Yorkers a fun, easy, and efficient option for these trips by providing access to sturdy bikes without having to worry about storage or maintenance.

New York City’s current bike share system,"Citi Bike", is a public-private partnership between the City of New York, represented by NYC DOT, and Lyft Bikes, a private company that owns and operates bike share systems around the country. With over 91 million trips since launch, bike share has proven its popularity and as Mayor de Blasio said, “Citi Bike has become part of our public transportation system"
