Check Out the Proposed Citi Bike Expansion for Bed Stuy

Check out this map of proposed Citi Bike stations for Bed Stuy, as part of DOT’s plans to expand the bike share program further east into the neighborhood. There are nine existing Citi Bike stations from Classon to Nostrand, between Flushing and Atlantic. The expanded boundaries go from Nostrand east to Lewis Avenue, between Flushing and Fulton. There are stations proposed outside of the Kingston-Throop C station, near the Mytle-Willoughby G station and near the Flushing Avenue J/M station, as well as many other spots throughout the neighborhood.

According to this DNAinfo article, there will be a total of 26 new stations which the DOT expects to install by the end of this year. Do these locations look good to the Bed Stuy bike riders out there? The map looks very comprehensive to me.

  1. There’s also one outlier on Malcolm X and Fulton to accommodate those exiting from the eastern end of the A/C at Utica.


  2. This is very cool, I’m happy. Unfortunately, if you check the suggestion map, it does not reflect the actual demand for bikes. There seem to be a lot more requests by the JMZ line(s) – I guess mostly from the Bushwick crowd. Oh well.


  3. What is your experience with the Community Board? I went only once because it involved the re-design of a park by my place. The people are well-intentioned, but (1) they live nowhere close to the actual park, have never stepped into it, and they couldn’t care less about the final result (2) they don’t really do any pre-meeting research to prepare well-argued points (e.g. how do we promote family-friendly activities? should we add more entrances on the East side?), but instead quibble over small things (e.g. should this flower bed be 1 foot longer on the right side?)

    It just feels like the bike map is the result of a similar process. I might be wrong, based on my very limited interaction with CB3.


    • that might have sounded a bit too negative.

      Just to reiterate: I’m super-psyched for the expansion, really happy about this! šŸ™‚
