The East Village is in the 1st rollout phase of the bike-share program this May, probably for sure
Well! Thanks to Streetsblog, we have an update on the oft-delayed bike-share program. Post-Sandy problems KO'd a full rollout this spring... But there will be a more modest rollout (263 stations instead of the originally planned 420), and the East Village is in the first phase for this spring (May, probs).
The updated bike-share map (above!) shows where the docking/sharing stations will be in the neighborhood. Go here for the interactive edition.
We love you, Blue?

I like the idea of city bike share programs, but racks of these bikes every 3 blocks around the entire city? Oh my God...
Let's see how pretty and blue they look after a couple of weeks in this town. This ain't Amsterdam.
Looking forward to being run over by a Citi Bike this spring! But don't worry. I'll feel much better after a frozen yogurt, conveniently found in every other store front.
Yep.....DEFINIELY going to be more pedestrians gettin' the "blues"....
.....but they shore look purdy right now!
(Something about that little kid in all of us,eh?
So many close to the East River... that boardwalk is doomed.
Who will be the first to print out stickers that spell "Sh"
@ g whiz- genius.
Crazy Eddie hit the nail on the head. Those bikes will be nasty within weeks.
In Boston they were used exclusively by tourists. Are New Yorkers really going to utilize this program?
I for one look forward to any creative defacing of the Citi-bikes. Just don't make them non-functioning. I do plan on using the bikes for one way trips when I don't want to lock my bike up overnight or for a couple of days, a possibility maybe NYC bike riders haven't yet been able to consider. I have used similar bike services in other cities and they do what they claim- allow tourist to take a harrowing trip to somewhere with the freedom to abandon the bike in a provided lock up.
Saw the same bike share system in London. Did not use it myself but it appeared that many residents used them for commuting. Anything that cuts away at the auto monopoly is good in my book.
D@mn that is one offensive looking bike. HOAGLEY!
