Bike Share Launch Now Set For May; LES Locations Mapped
Given the delays that have plagued the city’s new bike share program, we won’t get too excited about this one, but here’s an update anyway! The launch is now expected in May but you might start seeing the stations being set up in the next couple of weeks. Due to Hurricane Sandy, the Department of Transportation was forced to trim the number of initial stations from 420 to 293. The updated bike share map shows there are quite a few options on the Lower East Side. For example, there’s a station at Madison and Clinton streets with 27 docks. Another location at Forsyth and Broome features 39 docks. Click here if you’d like to check out the interactive map for yourself.
