BROOKLYN - With the launch of the city’s new bike share program only two weeks away, News 12’s Na’eem Douglas got a sneak peek at how the docking stations work at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
More than 9,000 people who have signed up for the Citi Bike program will be able to ride on May 27.
The 6,000 three-gear blue bikes will be locked up after each use at 330 locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The program hopes to eventually expand to 10,000 bikes and 600 docking stations that will also include Queens.
