BROOKLYN - The city's new bike share program was expected to be set into motion today, but it was postponed until later this month.
Citi Bike has set up docking stations throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan in preparation for the big launch. Officials say 6,000 bikes will be available at 300 locations for unlimited use at $95 per year, $25 per week or $10 per day.
While many can't wait to hit the road on two wheels and help the environment, the program is not without controversy. Many have complained about where the docking stations are located and about a manufacturer proposed 260-pound weight limit, which the city says it won't enforce.
