About a year ago, I wrote about the 2015 expansion plans for Citi Bike, NYC's bike sharing service. Recently, Citi Bike announced that it is starting another big expansion project – growing from 8,000 to 10,000 bikes in 2016. This most recent expansion will place stations up to 110th street on the Upper East Side & Upper West Side in Manhattan. Stations will also be added to Jersey City and new Brooklyn neighborhoods. See Citi Bike's 2016 expansion page for neighborhood maps with the new stations.
If you are considering signing up with the Citi Bike program, the annual fee is $155, but discounts are often offered and you can always get 10% off if you pay with a Citi Card. If you do join up, make sure you take a look at the Bike Smart pamphlet from the NYC Department of Transportation. It offers many riding tips and summarizes the rules of the road to help you ride safely.
