CitiBike, the new bike share system sponsored by CitiBank and Mastercard is due to launch in New York City in May 2013. The scheme plans to offer hundreds of stations filled with over 6,000 bikes placed all over the city that can be found using the Citibike app which also helps you plan your route and provides a curated list of top NYC restaurants, stores, museums and more for riders to discover.
