DOT announces Citi Bike locations for Prospect Heights

Posted: April 26, 2017 - 4:58pm

On Tuesday, April 25th, representatives from the NYC DOT and Motivate attended the CB8 Transportation Committee, and presented proposed locations for Citi Bike stations in Prospect Heights and Crown Heights.

Several hundred participants at two community workshops held in the fall of 2016 analyzed 175 possible locations for Citi Bike stations in the portion of CB8 bounded by Atlantic, Rogers, Eastern Parkway, and Flatbush Avenue, producing a wealth of community input for DOT's decision-making.

After analyzing this input and reviewing other site-specific logistics, NYC DOT has proposed 17 stations in community district 8, each with approximately 23-27 docks per station. 9 stations will be located on sidewalks, and 8 will be located on street beds.
