6,000 bikes were deployed by the city to encourage a new way of transportation around town. The stations are located below 60th Street, but will expand after this initial rollout.
I am pretty sure they will be a nice feature for tourists as well as locals who embrace the convenience of picking up a ride now and then. It'll be interesting to learn what the statistics are for use and accidents after the summer. Will there be DUI's on bikes since a bike is under same laws as a motor vehicle in NYS??
Here is a snapshot of the bike locator map to give you and idea of how many stations are here now. Then I took some impressionist liberty with a shot of the bikes in the meatpacking area.
And then some other shots all with the new XF55-200.
