Beginning in 2011 and continuing today, the New York City Department of Transportation conducts an extensive public input process. This process involves holding community planning workshops and meeting with community boards, elected officials, and community stakeholders to gather input. Additionally, DOT provides the opportunity for those who may not be able to attend a public meeting to give feedback through a feedback portal, where people can comment on where they would like to see Citi Bike stations, as well as locations not suitable for a station. This method of planning allows for a system truly designed for New Yorkers, to meet New Yorkers needs.
