Across Manhattan bike share docking stations are being installed. 

330 docking stations will open in Brooklyn and Manhattan, to be filled with 6,000 share bicycles.

Bad News For Obese Riders 

The bikes carry a limit of 260 pounds, and anyone who exceeds that amount, cannot use the program.  ABC News reports on this story, ‘NYC Bike-Share Program Bans Obese Riders.’ and the New York Daily News, ‘Bike-Share Ban.’

Convenient and Inexpensive Transportation

Citi Bike is New York City’s next public transportation system, that will provide convenient and inexpensive mobility 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

The DOT has built 200 bike lane miles in all five boroughs, and commuter cycling has more than doubled in New York City since 2005.
