With almost 600 bikeable miles already in place, the city finally launched its much-anticipated Citi Bike share program this past spring. NYC plans to go from 311 kiosks to 330 by midsummer, and within two years, have 600 in place. The fleet started with 6,000 bikes strong and should reach 10,000 in two years. The Citi Bike program may soon spread to outlying neighborhoods in the five boroughs such as Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Long Island City.
Cost: Annual membership ($95), 7-Day Pass ($25), 24-Hour Pass ($10); citibikenyc.com.
