A two-wheeled tsunami is about to hit New York — and Mayor Bloomberg couldn’t be more pleased.
A giddy Bloomberg on Friday promised that the perpetually delayed bike-sharing program would flood the city’s already-packed streets with more bikes than Beijing.
“It’s going to be increased by tens of thousands,” the mayor said of the future bike-share New York on his weekly WOR radio show. “Every city that’s done this, it is phenomenally popular.”
Some 5,500 bikes will be placed at 293 docking stations in Manhattan south of 59th Street and downtown Brooklyn in May.
