Citi Bike Is Increasing Capacity

In partnership with DOT, Citi Bike will add approximately 1,250 bikes and 2,500 docking points in Manhattan and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Since Citi Bike launched in May of 2013, the program has seen tremendous growth in members and rides per day, with over 150,000 members and 60+ million trips. The new coverage will help the program meet increasing demand for bike share as well the expected surge in cycling created by the closure of the L train. The process of providing denser coverage is known as “infill,” and will involve enlarging current stations and potentially adding new stations. 

DOT and Citi Bike are soliciting feedback to determine which stations community members prefer to get larger in Manhattan from Canal Street to 59th Street and in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The stations for consideration are organized into geographic groups listed below in the drop down menu. To provide feedback on an individual station, first click on the geographic grouping. If you are unsure of your station name, refer to the Citi Bike Station map: citibikenyc.com/map/.
