The Fine Print
No bike share for
most of part of Brooklyn until 2013. Via the relaunched Citi Bike website:
By August 2012, we expect to have 7,000 bikes and 420 stations available, with the rest of the system implemented in the spring of 2013, expanding to include parts of the Upper West and East Sides, and Park Slope, Prospect Heights and Crown Heights in Brooklyn.
As commenter Mike points out, Fort Greene and Williamsburg — and I’m assuming other areas of the borough close to the bridges — will be included in the early roll-out.
But the good news is that the operations center will be at the Brooklyn Navy Yard before moving to Sunset Park, according to first reports.
