As CitiBike begins station installation around town, you’ll notice that they’re located in different places:
- At the edge of public parks
- In pedestrian plazas and privately-owned public spaces
- On wide sidewalks
- In curbside lanes, medians and other locations along the street
These locations were selected through an extensive public process and each community selected the locations that worked best for their needs. See some sample station locations here.
Planning for the bike share system in New York City involved one of the most extensive community planning processes in the city’s history. This included 400 meetings and a website that received over 10,000 suggestions and 55,000 clicks of support for station locations.
Today, DOT releases NYC Bike Share: Designed by New Yorkers, a comprehensive report on the long-term public dialog that helped shape the system. The report includes a detailed project history, photos, timelines and an appendix of workshop materials and planning partners. Read the press release here.
Thank you for helping make CitiBike a success!
