New Yorkers: Meet Your Bike Share Station Map

New Yorkers, meet your Citi Bike station locations. Even more closely placed than your neighborhood Starbucks. Beginning next month, you'll be able to pick up and drop off bikes from Central Park South to Barclays Center. Annual members will get 45 minutes of free riding, daily members 30 minutes.

The New York City Department of Transportation has released an interactive map showing the draft locations of 293 stations located across Manhattan (below Central Park) and across a swath of Brooklyn through Fort Greene. (That 293  is down a bit from last year's projected launch of 420 stations.) Gray dots show the location of future docking stations. The DOT's website says it will "continue to work with New Yorkers to refine these station locations."

The system, which is scheduled to launch next month, will eventually grow to 10,000 bikes and 600 docking stations around the city. It's being operated by Alta Bike Share and funded by Citibank.

The city's bike share program was to have originally launched last year, but a one-two punch of software trouble followed by Sandy flooding knocked it back to May 2013.

It is unacceptable that Queens and the Bronx are being left out of this program. This shameful omission speaks to the kind of city NY has become. We should look to Paris as an example for a more equitable distribution scheme for a bike share program, where every neighborhood has at least one rack of bikes. Operative word here is SHARE. Be fair and spread the existing stations out across all boroughs. Let's not assume citizens in Jackson Heights, Corona or the South Bronx can't/won't ride these bikes. Come on WNYC, you can do better reporting than this! This is tinsel.

”Spatial contradictions ‘express’ conflicts between socio-economic interests and forces; it is only in space that such conflicts come effectively into play, and in so doing they become contradictions of space.” – Henri Lefebvre The Production of Space, p365.
