I was thinking about Citibike today, Citibike
is a bike rental that Mayor Bloomberg and his minnions
put around nyc. Many people are complaining about the program, some people love it.
I was looking at the map of where the bike stations are all located and they are only located from Brooklyn and Manhattan. Not upper Manhattan just
more midtown and lower. Not most of Brooklyn but concentrated near the bridges.There are hundreds of these bike stations. They could have spread them
around the 5 Boros but they did not.
There has been rumors of putting tolls on the bridges in Nyc. Does anyone think this Citibike plan could be a chess move to bring on the tolls? The
subways cost 2.50 one way and are crowded as is.. For a hundred bucks a year I get unlimited use of a bike for 45 minutes at a time. If the tolls went
on the bridges first, Subways might not be able to handle the extra people who would rather save money and take the train than pay a toll.
Also, I do not own an automobile but I see for myself how they took away valuable parking space for the racks.
Anyone have any thoughts?
