Final Map Released for Bike Share Expansion in East Harlem (Manhattan CB11)

NYC DOT conducted an extensive participatory planning and outreach campaign with the local community to select Citi Bike locations in East Harlem in early 2015 and through the first half of 2016. Per the program’s siting guidelines, this process included more than a dozen meetings and events with Community Board 11, local elected officials, area institutions, BIDs, and other community organizations. From public workshops to community presentations, DOT actively engaged with the community and listened to their concerns and comments.

The draft station siting plans were released by DOT in December of last year and since then, DOT reviewed the comments received from local stakeholders about proposed stations. As a result, DOT has relocated seven stations between the draft and final versions of the plans. Additionally, six stations were added to the final plan to improve system-wide density, helping to ensure that the Citi Bike program will provide a more robust and reliable service for users. You can view the final Citi Bike station sites in Manhattan CB 11 using the link below.

DOT anticipates that Motivate will install these stations as far north as 110th Street later this year, with the remaining stations in Manhattan Community Board 11 to be installed next year.

Final Maps Released for Bike Share Program UES & UWS

NYC DOT conducted an extensive participatory planning and outreach campaign with local communities to select Citi Bike locations on the Upper East and Upper West Sides in late 2014 and early 2015. This process, per the program’s siting guidelines, included more than 50 meetings and events with Community Boards 7 and 8, local elected officials, area institutions, BIDs, and other community organizations. From public workshops to community presentations, DOT actively engaged with the community and listened to their concerns and comments.

After releasing draft station siting plans in May, NYC DOT did a comprehensive review of the hundreds of comments received from local stakeholders about proposed stations and as a result, DOT has relocated five stations between the draft and final versions of the plans. Below is the link to access the final station sites for Citi Bike in the Upper East and Upper West Side.

DOT anticipates that Motivate will install these stations as far north as 86th Street later this year, with the remaining stations in Manhattan Community Boards 7 and 8 to be installed by early 2016.

Expanding the Citi Bike program north to the Upper East and Upper West Sides creates a great new transit amenity, facilitating cross-town travel, short trips within the neighborhood, and connectivity to subways, buses, and the existing Citi Bike program south of 60th Street. NYC DOT is excited for the Bike Share program to expand and to have worked closely with the local stakeholders in the process.
