Citi Bike Starts Astoria Installation

Citi Bike arrived in Astoria on September 22, with the first stations slated for expansion, including Vernon Boulevard and 41st Avenue, and 24th Street and 40th Avenue. Once complete later this fall, the neighborhood will have 59 Citi Bike stations as far north as Ditmars Boulevard and as far east as 44th Street.
Also on the docket for Queens: Long Island City can also expect several additional stations in the coming weeks, to ensure that bikes are available where and when they’re needed.
This is the final leg of Citi Bike’s phase two expansion – which will complete the system’s multi-year plan to grow 100% – from 6,000 to 12,000 bikes by the end of 2017.
New members can get $25 off their annual membership before September 30 (and more info on expansion) by visiting citibikenyc.com/expansion.
