[Updated] Citi Bike will be back in action tomorrow morning with limited service

[EVG photo on 6th and B from Saturday night]

Citi Bike officials shut down the grid last Friday night ahead of the blizzard... now they are ready to start up part of the system again tomorrow morning.

Here's the official CB message via Facebook:

Citi Bike will re-open tomorrow, Wednesday, 1/27/16 at 6:00 AM with *limited service*. Please check the station map or mobile app for up-to-date station information. Stations in blue are in-service, grey stations still need to be cleared. Snow removal will continue until all stations are cleared. AM Valet Service will be available as scheduled at Pearl & Hanover. AM Valet Service will not be offered at Penn Station or Port Authority. PM Valet Service will be available at all three stations. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding as we dig out!

Here's the link to the station map to check tomorrow morning.

Not sure about other docking stations around here... but the one on East Seventh Street and Avenue A looks ready for action...



Updated 1/27

I looked at the station map out of curiosity... you can see the local docking stations that are (and are not!) in service as of this morning... 7th Street and A and East 10th Street along Tompkins Square Park are among those dispensing the bikes...

Pretty sure CitiBike service is always limited.

Oh well. It was nice not having to look both ways when crossing a one way street (with the light) for a few days :-/

Because non-citibikers never go the wrong way.
