Complaints Surface Regarding Elizabeth Street Citi Bike Station

Citi Bikes at Hester And Elizabeth St. Station

The city’s Department of Transportation says Citi Bike is “pedaling past ridership records,” racking up more than 250,000 total trips in its first three weeks. Local elected officials and Community Board 3 report relatively few complaints in the early going, but one station in Chinatown is causing concern.  Several store owners have voiced their disapproval of the station on Elizabeth Street, between Hester and Canal.
