Transportation Nation gets into the nitty-gritty of the confusion surrounding the official bike share launch, but NYC residents should start seeing the first stages of deployment some time by September -- depending on your neighborhood.
It’s official. New York’s much anticipated bike share program will not launch this month as originally planned. Although on Monday afternoon the NYC Department of Transportation website still declared a July launch to what will become the nation’s largest bike share program, the agency confirms the program will not begin until at least August.
This isn’t the first time the DOT has cited a date after July, but it is the first time they have confirmed there would not be some kind of launch in July for the membership-based public bike rental system.
