I’m reaching out from the Department of Transportation’s Bike Share & Shared Mobility team to notify you that Citi Bike will be expanding into Queens Community Boards 3 and 4, which includes Jackson Heights, Corona, Elmhurst, and East Elmhurst.
As you may know, Citi Bike’s Phase 3 expansion is a five-year growth of New York City’s successful Citi Bike program that will double the size of the service area, covering all of Manhattan and significant portions of Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx, and increase the system’s fleet to 40,000 bikes.
I wanted to highlight that we are opening our online feedback map as part of the planning process to collect suggestions from the public on where Citi Bike stations should be located within CB 3 and 4.
Citi Bike’s success is based on strong community feedback. Please circulate this link via email, newsletter, or social media pages. For the language of posts, here are the posts our social media team made about the feedback map (Facebook and Twitter). Please add in your own suggestions!
We’re more than happy to meet to discuss further or answer any questions you may have regarding this expansion. Thank you & I hope to hear back!
