First Look At NYC Bikeshare Stations

First Look At NYC Bikeshare Stations

The anticipated and delayed 'Citi Bike NYC' program will be launching next month with 5,500 bicycles.

Recently there has been evidence that the highly anticipated ‘Citi Bike NYC‘ program will soon be a reality, as images were posted of newly installed bike stations in Brooklyn. Similar programs already exist elsewhere in the U.S. as well as across the globe in countries like China, France, Spain, Germany, Brazil, India, Israel, and Australia.

These are often a response to growing cycling communities and are a way of encouraging commuting and decreasing traffic congestion. NYC’s bike sharing system is intended to provide New Yorkers and visitors with an additional transportation option for getting around the city.

The program has been delayed due to “software problems” and floods caused by Hurricane Sandy damaged some of the system’s equipment, which was stored at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Citi Bike NYC has a fleet of specially designed, durable bikes locked into a network of docking stations sited around the city, which can be rented and returned to any station.

They will be available for use 24 hours a day, all year round, and there are expected to be 5,500 bikes in service by next month. Each station has a touchscreen kiosk, a map of the service area and surrounding neighborhood, and a docking system that releases bikes for rental with a card or key.

Brooklyn Spoke has taken some photos of the new stations in Bedford-Stuyvesant and Clinton Hill:
