Public Funding For Citi Bike Expansion Supported By Harlem’s Ydanis Rodriguez And Others

January 17, 2017

Flanked by colleagues, Citi Bike riders and bike advocates, Ydanis Rodriguez, Chair of the City Council Transportation Committee, will announce the widespread NYC Council support for public funding to continue Citi Bike’s expansion to all five boroughs in city budget on Wednesday.

With De Blasio’s leadership, Citi Bike has moved from an urban experiment to a full component of our city’s transportation infrastructure. In order to ensure that the Citi Bike program remains accessible to everyone and is able to meet the Mayor’s goal of equity by expanding into all five boroughs, a majority of Council Members maintain that City funding is necessary.

The supporters include:
  • Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, Transportation Committee Chair
  • Members of the NYC Council
  • Transportation Alternatives
  • Bed-Stuy Restoration Corporation
  • Bike Advocates
